Buhari Condemns Attack On Katsina School, Tells Army, Police What To Do

President Muhammadu Buhari, on Saturday condemned the bandits’ attack at the Government Science Secondary School, Kankara in Katsina State, where students were reportedly abducted.

The president also directed men of the Nigerian Army and the Nigerian Police Force to go after the attackers to ensure that no student gets missing or harmed.

Buhari’s position was contained in a statement forwarded to Igbere TV endorsed by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, titled “President Buhari strongly condemns bandits’ attack on Katsina school.”

According to the statement, the President urged the school authorities to carry out an audit of the population of the students following shootings in and around the school that sent hundreds of them fleeing and scrambling over perimeter walls.

He also asked that parents who rushed to the school and took their children and wards away should notify the school and police authorities in order to have a full account of the school population.

“I strongly condemn the cowardly bandits’ attack on innocent children at the Science School, Kankara.

“Our prayers are with the families of the students, the school authorities and the injured,” the statement qouted the President as saying while pledging to continue to support the police and military struggle against terrorists and bandits.

Meanwhile, in the latest briefing received by the President from Governor Aminu Bello Masari, and the Army Chief of Staff, General Tukur Buratai, the military, supported by air power is said to have located the bandits’ enclave at Zango/Paula forest in Kankara and “there have been exchange of fire in an ongoing operation.”

Police said so far, there has not been reported any student casualty.

The President has, therefore, directed the reinforcement of security of all schools in line with the safe schools policy of the administration.
