Senate President condemns Kagara school abduction



President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, has condemned the savage attack on Government Science College, Kagara in Rafi Local Government Area of Niger, where some staff and students of the school were abducted.

Lawan in a statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media, Ola Awoniyi, on Wednesday, described the incident as a callous and despicable.

He urged the security agencies to ensure immediate rescue of the abducted persons and arrest of the criminals involved.

“Our security establishment should collaborate across the agencies and with the state government to expeditiously accomplish this task.

“Government at all levels should also ensure that our schools are henceforth protected against heartless criminals who have apparently identified them as soft targets,”Lawan said.

Lawan sympathised with the families of the victims, the government and people of Niger over the incident.

He also assured Nigerians of the determination of the Senate and the National Assembly to work with the Federal Government in finding a lasting solution to the security situation in the country.
