The management of Federal University Gusau, Zamfara State, has appealed to the government to accelerate the rescue of the remaining twelve female students from captivity.

The institution’s management also demanded from both the government and the security operatives to redouble their efforts to prevent further kidnapping in schools

This was stated in Gusau, the State capital by the Dean of Students Affairs of the University, Dr. Lawal Saad during an interaction with the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Student Engagement on Safe School Initiatives, Sunday Adebayo.


Saad further explained that between April 2023 and January 2024, the university has recorded seven kidnappings by gunmen.

In the meeting were the State Commissioner for Education, Science and Technology, Hon. Wadatua Madawaki, representatives of the National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS, government officials and security agencies.

They gathered to brainstorm on how to secure schools to make them safer for students and staff.

Adedayo assured that the Tinubu-led administration was committed to ensuring that the twelve remaining abducted female students of the Federal University in Gusau were rescued.

He appealed to their parents and management of the Federal University to remain calm as the government was not sleeping over the issue.

In his remark, Madawaki outlined the State government’s commitment to partner with the Federal government to end the kidnapping of students and staff in schools and provide a peaceful learning environment.

However, they commended the security operatives in the fight against insecurity, urging them to redouble their efforts to end the dastardly act of kidnapping in schools which is creating fear and making learning difficult for students.
