NANS seeks release of abducted Zamfara, Kaduna students

The National Association of Nigerian Students has appealed to authorities concerned to use all means to rescue abducted university and secondary school students from captivity.

Two female Microbiology students of the Federal University, Gusau, Zamfara, and another 10 female secondary school students of Kachia Local Government Area in Kaduna State are being held by the kidnappers.

The Deputy Coordinator, Inter-Campus Affairs of NANS Zone A, Vanessa Kwere, made the appeal in a statement issued in Birnin Kebbi on Saturday.

Kwere issued the statement after the NANS delegation met with the management of the university shortly after the union’s zonal convention held in Jigawa recently.

He pointed out that the call became imperative in view of the fact that the abducted students were under the care of the government, hence, they remained the property of the government.

Kwere said, “We were notified of the sad news regarding the abduction of two 200-level female students of the Microbiology Department, Federal University, Gusau.

“It is indeed a heart-touching incident, we had to stop by to pay a solidarity visit, to also sympathise with the institution on this incident
