The Sokoto State government has ordered all boarding schools to be closed with immediate effect following a recent abduction of students from Senior Government Secondary School, Kankara, Katsina State.
If what happens in Katsina happens here in Sokoto, there will be a serious trauma among the parents and we might not be lucky to have that quick response like that of the Kankara Students says a resident in Sokoto.
The government of Sokoto applauded the president handling of security artitechture but wants him to put more resources in our security forces so as to curb this menace of kidnapping, banditry and Boko Haram Insurgency to its barest minimum if not completely eradicated.
President Buhari who spoke to the abducted school children assures them of adequate security measures in protecting schools and Nigerians from external aggression.
Northern Nigeria has been prone to attacks from banditry, kidnapping and Boko Haram Insurgency,thousands of lives has been killed, properties worth millions destroyed, while millions displaced in their own land.
