The protesters demanded the prompt rescue of students abducted by bandits on Friday night. The Protest comes as the Katsina State Governor, Aminu Masari has confirmed that 333 students are missing following an attack on Government Science Secondary School, Kankara, Katsina on Friday night.
The protest was led by a woman who identified herself as one of the mothers of the abducted students.
The Coalition of Northern Groups has threatened to mobilise students and youths to go on protest in Katsina state if the abducted students were not rescued on time.
The school has a population of 839 students and those kidnapped cut across the state with the boarding school housing all children from all parts of the state and outside the state.
The chairman of the North-West zone of the group, Jamiu Aliyu who addressed a press conference in Katsina said, “We condemn in totality this barbaric act and call for the immediate arrest and prosecution of the culprits, we equally stress the inability of the government to protect those young, innocent, vibrant students from this horrible attack as uncalled for.
“Failure of the government to rescue the missing students within the shortest period of time, CNG will not hesitate to mobilize hundreds of thousands on the streets of Katsina state for a continuous protest, until the students are fully rescued, even if it’s going to cost our lives.”
