Protests In Katsina Over Abduction of School Boys.

Protest reportedly broke out  in Kastina State on Sunday over the abduction of over 300 school boys from the Government Science Secondary School, in Kankara Local Government Area of the state.

The protest was led by a woman who identified herself as one of the mothers of the abducted students.

The protesters demanded the prompt effort by the state government to rescue the students abducted by bandits on Friday night.

Chanting songs seeking the rescue of the abducted students, the protesters went around the school’s premises, and some parts of the town with placards conveying various messages, among which are ‘Government must speak out’, ‘We want our children back’ and ‘We want security in Kankara’.

In same vein, the Coalition of Northern Groups has threatened to mobilize students and youths to go on protest in Katsina state if the abducted students were not timely rescued.

The chairman of the North-West zone of the group, Jamiu Aliyu, who addressed a press conference in Katsina said, “We condemn in totality this barbaric act and call for the immediate arrest and prosecution of the culprits, we equally stress the inability of the government to protect those young, innocent, vibrant students from this horrible attack as uncalled for.

“Failure of the government to rescue the missing students within the shortest period, CNG will not hesitate to mobilize hundreds of thousands on the streets of Katsina state for a continuous protest, until the students are fully rescued, even if it’s going to cost our lives.”
