Insecurity: PDP Chieftain Reacts To Kankara School Abduction By Gunmen

Dr Emeka Kalu

More reactions have continued to trail the recent abduction of over 300 students from the Government Science Secondary school, kankara, Katsina State.

This is more worrisome given the fact that the incident happened while the President, Muhammadu Buhari was holidaying in his state. 

Undoubtedly, this development has accentuated the fear of many Nigerians about the high level of insecurity across the states.

Reacting to the development, Chief Dr. Emeka Kalu, a chieftain of the opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and National Coordinator of People’s Democratic Party Coalition (PDPCOALITION) have condemned the abduction, saying the action of the bandits against innocent school children was unacceptable.

Kalu in a statement signed by him, called on security agencies to immediately swing into action with a view not only to rescuing the missing students but also apprehend the perpetrators and make them face the consequences of their action.

The former Abia guber aspirant also described the development as an unfortunate reminder of the terrorists’ attacks, with the slaughtering of over 70 rice farmers near the village of Zabarmari, Borno State still fresh in the memory of Nigerians.

He described the attack on innocent school children as not only cowardly but also callous and a crime against humanity, prohibited under the international humanitarian law.

Kalu noted with regret that the action of the bandits totally affects Nigeria’s effort towards enhancement of child education and development.

While commiserating with parents of the children and victims of the incessant killings in the North in particular and the country in general, the PDP chieftain called on the bandits to lay down their arms and release those in their custody.

According to him, the attack on the school was a further confirmation that the security situation in the country was not getting better, hence the need to immediately rejig the nation’s security architecture beginning with the sack of service chiefs.

He slammed President Muhammadu Buhari for his very slow commitment to addressing security challenges in the country.

He tasked the president to immediately rejig the security architecture of the country beginning with the sack of service chiefs who he noted, had become exhausted to face the increasingly worsening security situation.

“The news of the kidnapped students of Government Science College, kankara is regrettable and embarrassing. There’s the need to bring perpetrators, organizers, financiers and sponsors of these reprehensible acts of terrorism to justice. Those responsible for these terrorist attacks should be held accountable,” he stated.
