NSCDC working with police, military to rescue abducted students – Audi

The Commandant General (CG) of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, Dr Ahmed Abubakar Audi, has assured the people of Kaduna State of a speedy recovery of the abducted students. 

The CG gave this assurance when he visited the Kaduna State Governor, Senator Uba Sani, a statement on Thursday by the NSCDC spokesman, Babawale Afolabi, said.

Audi said the 200 students and teachers of Government Secondary School and LEA Primary School in Kuriga Chikun LGA in Kaduna would be rescued from their abductors and brought home safely.

He said efforts were in top gear as the security agencies were relentlessly working to effect the release of the students and their teachers.

“We are ready to work in collaboration with all relevant security agencies with full mechanisms and security apparatus put in place to see that the perpetrators of this heinous crime do not go scot-free.

“The NSCDC remains a key actor in the nation’s internal security and the lead agency in the Safe Schools Initiative. Currently, we are in strong synergy with the Nigerian Army, the Police and others for the quick and safe return of the abducted students,” Audi was quoted as saying.

He appealed to communities in Kaduna State to work closely with security agencies by providing actionable intelligence and information to achieve the desired success and results afterwards.

Governor Sani lauded the effective collaboration of the Corps with the Armed Forces, Nigeria Police, and the DSS amongst others, saying all critical stakeholders must play active roles to forestall criminalities in the Kaduna State.
