Kaduna State governor, Uba Sani, has reassured the families of the 287 kidnapped Kuriga school children and teachers that they will return home safely as the state government is on top of the situation.

Governor Sani told stakeholders, traditional rulers and chairmen of the seven local government areas under constant attack by terrorists that the relevant security agencies and President Bola Tinubu have swung into full action to ensure the safe return of the abductees.

The affected local government areas are Kajuru, Birnin Gwari, Kachia, Kagarko, Igabi, Chikun and Giwa.

At a meeting yesterday in Kaduna, Governor Sani charged the traditional rulers to report strange movements and attacks by terrorists promptly to enable security operatives swing into action spontaneously.

He said, “Like I said, we are making a lot of progress and we are also working to ensure that our children return back home safely. Only yesterday I had further interactive session with the communities that were affected, particularly the Kuriga community. I have no doubt in my mind that the efforts we are making with relevant security agencies and Mr. President has been doing everything possible to ensure that our children return back home safely. I can say it here that Mr. President is determined, I have had a series of discussions with him, the NSA, and service chiefs also. A lot of progress has been made so far. We will not disclose it here, but we are on top of the matter and by the grace of God, our children will return home safely.

“We are here to have a very important meeting which should be more of an interactive meeting between the Kaduna State government and head of security agencies in Kaduna as well as members of the state Assembly from the seven local government areas that were affected by the unfortunate incident of insecurity in the last few weeks. With us here also are our highly respected traditional rulers from the seven local government areas.”

The governor had on Thursday, March 7, the day the school children were abducted in Kuriga assured the parents that the abductees would return unhurt.
