Nigeria President Bola Tinubu has directed security agencies to rescue the remaining female students of the Federal University Gusau, Zamfara State, who were recently abducted by terrorists.
In a statement issued on Sunday by presidential spokesperson, Ajuri Ngelale, the President, while condemning the reprehensible act of abduction, said there was no moral justification for such heinous crimes against innocent victims whose only “offence” was their pursuit of quality education.
The President wholeheartedly commiserated with all families directly impacted by the sad incident and affirmed that his administration has a solemn duty to protect every Nigerian citizen, and in line with this commitment, assured the families of the abducted students that no effort will be spared in ensuring their safe return.
President Tinubu further pledged the determination of the federal government towards ensuring that educational institutions remain sanctuaries of knowledge, growth, and opportunity, and totally free from the menacing acts of terrorists.
