Activist Aisha Yesufu, says the “body language” of the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), emboldens bandits and terrorists in the country to continue their heinous acts.
Yesufu was reacting to the abduction of over 300 schoolgirls from Jangebe in Zamfara State by gunmen suspected to be bandits.
The rate of mass abduction of students by bandits in the northern part of Nigeria has become alarming in recent times. Just a week ago, bandits kidnapped dozens of students and workers of Government Science College in Kagara, Niger State. Bandits had also last year kidnapped over 300 schoolboys from Government Science Secondary School in Kankara, Katsina State. Aside from Kankara and Kagara, non-state actors had also abducted hundreds of secondary school girls from Chibok, in Borno State; and Dapchi in Yobe State.
