Kebbi abduction: We shall not rest – Gov Atiku Bagudu reacts, makes promise

Saturday, June 19, 2021


Governor Atiku Bagudu of Kebbi State on Friday night pledged to support security agencies in the fight against banditry across the State.

Bagudu gave the pledge while addressing parents, staff and students of Federal Government College (FGC) Birnin Yauri, during a sympathy visit to the college.

The Governor assured that his administration would leave no stone unturned until all the abducted persons were rescued, adding that ensuring the security of life and property was paramount.

“As a government, we shall not rest until all students and teachers abducted by bandits from the Federal Government College, Birnin Yauri, are rescued, while additional security would be provided to all institutions of learning”, he assured.

Bagudu, on behalf of President Muhammadu Buhari, sympathised with the staff and students of the college, just as he commended security agencies in the state for their quick response that led to the rescue of some of the abducted students and teachers.

The Governor also commended parents and guardians for remaining calm and sustaining prayers to God for His intervention.

Recall that armed men suspected to be bandits had abducted the students and teachers on Thursday.

The bandits were said to have killed a police officer before whisking the four staff and an unspecified number of students to an unknown location.

One of the students abducted from the school was shot dead during a gun duel between soldiers and the abductors.

Meanwhile, five of the abducted students and two teachers of the Federal Government College in Birnin-Yauri, Kebbi State, have been rescued.

Their rescue was disclosed by the Nigerian Army on Friday.

The army also confirmed that during a gun duel that ensued, an exhausted student gave up the ghost.
