Insecurity: ‘Jangebe abduction will be the last’ – Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has assured Nigerians that last Friday’s abduction of female students from Government Girls Science Secondary School, Jangebe, will be the last to happen.

The president’s statement was relayed yesterday, through Minister of Aviation, Hadi Sirika, who led a high-powered federal government delegation to sympathise with the people and government of Zamfara.

According to Buhari, new measures had been developed by the Federal Government which would bring complete end to all forms of criminality in the nation.

“The President is saddened by the abduction of the students from Jangebe and reassures you that the government has all the resources and wherewithal to contain these criminals. Buhari also commended Gov. Bello Matawalle of Zamfara’s efforts against armed banditry and promised a continued support to bringing lasting peace”, it stated.

In his response, Matawalle appreciated Buhari and the federal government’s concern, noting that very soon the abductees would regain their freedom.

 “I strongly believe in the president and his effort in fighting all forms of insurgence and urge him to improve on the nation’s security. This is by ensuring synergy among the security agencies so that confrontations with criminals can be coordinated on ground and air simultaneously,” the governor said.

Other members of the delegation were the Minister of Police Affairs, Maigari Dingyadi, Minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Disaster Management, Sadiyya Umar-Farouq and the Minister of Women Affairs, Pauline Tallen.
