The House of Representatives has called on all the security agencies in Nigeria to intensify efforts in search of 6 female students and two staff of Engravers College Secondary School, Kaduna state.
The call was made on Wednesday, October 9, after the lawmakers adopted a motion sponsored by Honourable Yakubu Bade to that effect at the plenary session presided by Speaker Femi Gbajabiamila, Nigerian Tribune reports.
Legit.ng gathers that the lawmakers said that Nigerians should be security-sensitive as kidnappers may soon be visiting homes for abduction.
According to Honourable Bade, the 6 students and two staff were abducted by armed men who gained entry into the premises of the boarding school located at Kakau Daji Village in Chikun local government area along Kaduna-Abuja highway.
The lawmaker said: “The abductors have established contact with the school authority two days after, demanding the sum of N5 million as ransom before they could release the abducted and as I speak neither the parents of the students nor the school authority has been able to provide the money.
"Of course, we all know the economic difficulty everyone is in the country now, therefore, raising such amount of money may not be easy.
“The House is further aware that the Kaduna state government in collaboration with the security agencies have mobilised personnel to the area for possible rescue of the victims. An effort that is commendable.
“The House is worried that over 6 days now, these students with their teachers are still in the custody of these armed men and only God knows what they will be going through in the hands of these senseless, insensitive and wicked creatures in our society."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that the lawmaker representing Ado/Okpokwu/Ogbadibo of Benue state in the House of Representatives, Francis Agbo, condemned the rising spate of kidnapping and killing in the state.
