The Coalition of Northern Groups (CNG), on Sunday, threatened to mobilise students and youths to go on protest in Katsina State if the abducted students of Government Science Secondary School, Kankara, Kankara Local Government Area of the state were not rescued on time.
A protest was however led yesterday by a woman who claimed to be one of the mothers of the abducted students, demanding the prompt rescue of the students kidnapped by the bandits on Friday night.
Carrying placards with various inscriptions, which included ‘Government must speak out’, ‘We want our children back’ and ‘We want security in Kankara’, the protesters went around the school premises and some parts of Kankara town, chanting songs seeking the rescue of the abducted students.
The chairman of the North-West zone of CNG, Jamiu Aliyu, at a press conference in Katsina on Sunday vowed to embark on massive protest against the government.
He 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.”
Recall that the Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Muhammadu Sa’ad Abubakar III had raised alarm over the state of insecurity in the northern part of Nigeria.
