PDP condemns UNIABUJA bandit attack, blames Buhari, others
Meanwhile, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Tuesday, November 2, condemned the invasion and abduction of some staff and their family members from the University of Abuja, Gwagwalada.
A statement by the national publicity secretary of the PDP, Kola Ologbondiyan, said the attack by the gunmen who abducted four staff members and some children in the institution is cowardly.
The party also demanded an unconditional release of the victims to reunite with their families members.
Ologbondiyan further described the attack which "occurred within the precincts of President Muhammadu Buhari’s immediate security purview, just 16 kilometres from the Aso Presidential Villa" as shocking.
He said the attack shows the helplessness and failures of President Muhammadu Buhari's administration.
"With this act of banditry in Abuja, Nigerians expect President Buhari, in line with his promise to lead from the fronts, to straightaway give himself a “marching order” to rescue the victims, just as gives to others whenever there are cases of security failures in commands outside of his security precincts."
