The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) has condemned the abduction of male students from Government Science secondary school, Kankara, Katsina State.

According to the Governor of Katsina State, Aminu Masari, about 333 students are still missing from the boarding school after an attack on Saturday by armed bandits.

UNICEF in a statement on Monday called for the boys’ immediate release, describing the attack on schools as a violation of children’s rights.

The statement read: “We are deeply concerned about these acts of violence”.

“UNICEF condemns in the strongest possible terms this brutal attack and calls for the immediate and unconditional release of all children and their return to their families.”

It’s Regional Director for West and Central Africa, Marie-Pierre Poirier, expressed solidarity with the families of the students and their communities.

Poitier declared that the violence was a “grim reminder” that abductions of children and widespread grave violations of children’s rights continue to take place in the northern part of Nigeria.

“Children should feel safe at home, in schools and in their playgrounds at all times.

“We stand with the families of the missing children and the community affected by this horrifying event,” she added.
