Chief Atiku Abubakar has condemned the abduction of school girls in Zamfara state, as he pushed for state Police to curb the security challenges in the country.
Atiku while reacting to the abduction of the school girls from a Government secondary school in Zamfara state, said states need to be empowered to control their internal security.
“My heart is very heavy over the abduction of our young daughters from Government Girls Secondary School, Jangebe, Zamfara State.
I have had a phone conversation with the Governor of Zamfara, H.E Bello Matawalle, and I am informed that his government is doing everything in its power to secure the release of the abducted students.
I have previously made recommendations on how our beloved nation can defeat enemies of the state and win the war on terror, and I stand by those suggestions.
However, right now, all hands must be on deck to support the Zamfara state government in securing the release of those abducted,” he said.
