In response to the recent upsurge in terrorist activities within the nation, President Bola Tinubu has issued a directive to security agencies, instructing them to take immediate action to rescue the female students of the Federal University Gusau in Zamfara State. These students were recently abducted by a group of terrorists, an incident that has sparked various reactions across the country.
The President’s decision to issue this directive stems from troubling reports indicating that a gang of bandits forcibly entered a university hostel and subsequently kidnapped a number of students.
President Tinubu, in unequivocal terms, condemned this reprehensible act of abduction. He conveyed his strong disapproval of the incident through his media aide, Ajuru Ngelale, during a statement made on Sunday.
President Tinubu firmly believes that there is no moral justification for committing such heinous crimes against innocent victims, whose only “offense” was their pursuit of a quality education.
According to Ngelale, the President expressed his heartfelt condolences to all families directly affected by this tragic incident. Furthermore, he reaffirmed his administration’s solemn duty to safeguard every Nigerian citizen and pledged to spare no effort in ensuring the safe return of the abducted students.
The President made a resolute commitment to guarantee that educational institutions continue to be havens of knowledge, growth, and opportunity. He also emphasized the government’s determination to keep these institutions completely free from the menacing acts of terrorists.
