Abduction Of Students: Atiku Warns Of Looming Danger

Former presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar on Tuesday (27th April 2021) warned of imminent danger over the continuous attacks on schools in the country. Atiku who spoke while condemning the abduction of three students of the University of Agriculture in Makurdi, Benue State yesterday, warned that darkness awaits Nigerians if the attacks on schools are not curbed.

In a statement he titled: “Darkness Awaits Us If We Do Not End The Attacks on Our Citadels of Learning,” Atiku said: The abduction of a yet unspecified number of undergraduates of the Federal University of Agriculture, Makurdi, Benue State, is one abduction too many.

“It marks both an unacceptable escalation and an expansion of this menace, and we must not only ensure that the abducted youths are rescued, but even more importantly, we must put in measures to prevent future reoccurrences.

“This must not be allowed to become our new normal. It is time for us as a nation to face the reality that we have an emergency on our hands. A catastrophe that must be decisively dealt with before it snowballs into an existential crisis.

“We must stop treating these acts of criminality with kid gloves. Enough is enough! There must be the safety of lives and property in our citadels of learning.”
