No Nigerian should be in captivity, Speaker Abbas charges security agencies on Sokoto abduction

Rt. Hon. Abbas Tajudeen, Ph.D, the Speaker of the House of Representatives has condemned yet another mass abduction of pupils in Sokoto State by suspected bandits.

This abduction followed the previous ones in Borno and Kaduna States in one week, which the Speaker has condemned in strong terms.

Speaker Abbas, who noted that no Nigerian should be in captivity, charged the military and other security agencies to go after the abductors and rescue the victims.

“We must collectively rise to the occasion and stem the tide of abductions, especially of women and children, at a time when the government is making efforts to address the high rate of out-of-school children.

“The schools must be safe for our children. Our security agencies need to act fast,” Speaker Abbas said.

About 15 pupils were reportedly abducted from an Islamic school in Gidan Bakuso, Gada Local Government Area of Sokoto State on Saturday.
