Abuja (Sundiata Post) – The federal government said it deeply share the anguish of the parents of the abducted Greenfield University students, stressing that it’s working to support the Kaduna State Government to bring this tragic saga to an end with no further loss of innocent life.
Recalls that the parents of the abducted students had during a protest yesterday in Abuja, called on the National Assembly to do everything humanly possible to fastrack the release of their children.
The Presidency which gave the assurance via it’s twitter handle, promised to ensure that good triumphs over evil, and that all of the bandits and criminals terrorizing innocent lives and communities are brought to book.
The Presidency therefore urged all Nigerians to unite, regardless of religion, ethnicity or partisan affiliation—against this common, dastardly enemy.
Sundiata Post recalls that the federal government on Tuesday (yesterday) through the Minister of Information, Alhaji Lai Mohammed said that the prosecution of bandits is not the responsibility of the federal government because it is not a federal offence.
The Minister stated this at a press conference in Abuja while responding to statement credited to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party on the security challenges facing the country.
The PDP alleged that kidnappers and bandits are emboldened because they are not being brought to justice and that accounts for why they have spread from north east to other parts of the country.
