Former Presidential aide, Bashir Ahmad, has reacted to the abduction of some female students of the Federal University Gusau in Zamfara State.
Recall that more than 24 students were abducted in the early hours of Friday after bandits invaded the institution in the Sabon-Gida community of the Bungudu Local Government Area of the state.
A resident of Sabon-Gida, identified as Nazeer Sabon-Gida, told Channels Television that the gunmen invaded the community around 3 a.m. and started shooting indiscriminately.
He stated that three students’ hostels were attacked, and the bandits took away all the students in the hostels.
Another source said the bandits were engaged with troops of the Nigerian Army in a fierce gun battle, but that did not stop the bandits from escaping with the kidnapped victims.
However, Operation Hadarin Daji of the Nigerian Army, under the command of the General Officer Commanding 8 Division, has rescued six out of over 24 abducted female students.
In a post via X, Bashir called on government authorities at all levels to take swift and decisive action to secure the release of the kidnapped students.
He also prayed for the victims’ families, hoping the kidnapped students would reunite with their loved ones.
He wrote: “In these trying times, we stand together in unity and solidarity, demanding the safe return of our innocent sisters, the students of the Federal University of Gusau, to their families. No student should ever have to fear for their safety while pursuing education. The authorities at all levels of government should take swift and decisive action to secure the release of the kidnapped students.
“While our prayers and thoughts are with the victims, their families and the Nigerian troops, we remain hopeful that the kidnapped students will soon be reunited with their loved ones.”
