A protest took place on Sunday over the abduction of many schoolboys from the Government Science Secondary School, Kankara in the Kankara Local Government Area of Kastina state.

The parents of the kidnapped students, who were the key protesters demanded the immediate saving of children from the bandits.

One of the mothers of the victims led the protest.

The protesters went around the school’s premises and some parts of the town with placards giving so many messages, among which are: “Government must speak out, We want our children back and We want security in Kankara”.

They equally sang to the rescue of the abducted students.

Meanwhile, the Coalition of Northern Groups has threatened to mobilise students and youths to go on protest in Katsina state if the abducted students were not rescued on time.

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 of time, 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.”
