Kidnapping In Schools: Atiku Wants Schools Armed Guards

Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar is once again, urging the Federal Government led by President Muhammadu Buhari, to declare a state of emergency in Nigerian schools, with the posting of 24-hours armed guards to all schools. He said this while reacting to the spate of kidnapping in schools, especially in the northern region of the country.

Atiku Abubakar the increased kidnapping in schools in Nigeria, and the latest one in Kaduna on Sunday night, took to his official Twitter handle to put out this post where he said:

With the latest Kaduna school abduction, I repeat my call for the FG to declare a state of emergency in the education sector and to post 24-hour armed guards at every school in the affected and neighbouring states. No expense must be spared to keep our schools safe.

With 13.5 million children, Nigeria is already the world headquarters for out of school kids. This can only make things worse. It behoves on us as a nation to act decisively and excise this cancer of school abductions from our polity with clinically precise policies,” he said.

Atiku also frowned at the allegation of ransom payment to bandits and kidnappers, saying it will not stop the kidnapping in schools,

We must also stop paying ransom at random. It is a short term solution that will cause much long term destruction. We must, as a nation, impose law and order now, or we will bequeath lawlessness and disorder to the next generation. And may God forbid that.,” he added.
