Northern Groups Threaten Protests Over Abductions in Katsina
The Coalition of Northern Groups, CNG, has threatened to embark on a nationwide protest if the government fails to rescue students kidnapped during a bandits’ attack on Government Science Secondary School Kankara, Katsina State.
The Northwest Coordinator of the Coalition, Jamilu Aliyu Charanchi made this known during a press briefing held in the state capital.
Charanchi said thousands of protesters will be mobilized if the school pupils are not rescued as soon as possible.
He also slammed President Muhammadu Buhari for not visiting the affected school, despite being in the state for a private visit.
According to him, the insurgent attack on the school exposes the weakness of the government and its lack of concern for the educational sector.
