Amnesty International, a global think tank, has condemned the approach of President Bola Tinubu-led government on tackling the current incessant abduction of school students in the Northern region of Nigeria.
Media reports show that about four students of the Nasarawa State University, Keffi (NSUK) were kidnapped by some suspected terrorists at Angwan Kare around 10:30pm on Monday.
The organization released a short statement on its X (formerly Twitter) to react to the development, saying that schools should be places of safety and no person should have to choose between their education and their lives.
Part of the statement read, “The Nigerian authorities must urgently tame the tide of abduction of students, as gunmen abducted 4 female students of the Nasarawa State University Keffi.
“Schools should be places of safety, and no person should have to choose between their education and their life.
“The authorities appear to have learned nothing from the series of school abductions that took place across the Northern part of Nigeria.
“The latest abduction clearly shows, there appears to be no framework in place to prevent further school abductions.”
