On Tuesday, former presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar warned of danger over the continuous attacks on schools in the country.
Atiku warned that darkness awaits Nigerians if the attacks on schools are not stopped. He said this as he condemn the abduction of three students of the University of Agriculture in Makurdi, Benue State yesterday.
The former Vice President lamented that the latest abduction was one too many.
He said “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.”
