The President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, has condemned the attack on Friday on Government Secondary School, Jangebe in Zamfara State where hundreds of schoolgirls were abducted.

Lawan expressed sadness and outrage that the incident happened while efforts were still being made to rescue those abducted just over a week ago at another secondary school in Kagara, Niger State.

The Senate President said the recurrent attacks on schools and other acts of banditry call for intense soul searching on how the nation arrived at this sorry pass and how to cage the monster of violent crimes in Nigeria.

Lawan expressed his sympathy for the abducted schoolgirls and urged the authorities at all levels to work together to ensure their immediate rescue.

The Senate President also reiterated his call on the state authorities to accord priority to securing schools and other locations now seen as soft targets by savage criminals.


  1. nigeria government encouraged banditry and all act of criminality they are using nigerian resources to trade with criminals ….nigeria government are continue fooling themself BLOOD OF INNOCIENT SOUL WILL SURELY CARTER PORT THOSE BEHIND DISTURB NIGERIA PEACE

  2. The senate president can do better than just condemning serial kidnapping in the country. He can look into various measures that the senate can adopt to bring the situation under control. Merely condemning the situation will never lead the country anywhere.
