The Coalition of Northern Groups, CNG, said that President Muhammadu Buhari owes the country the duty over the failure of his administration in providing security to the country.
The group expressed happiness with the release of the kidnapped staff and students of Government Sciences College, Kagara in Niger state.
The CNG spokesman, Abdul-Azeez Suleiman, in a statement explained, “The Coalition of Northern Groups CNG is excited by reports that the kidnapped staff and students of Government Science College Kagara have finally regained freedom from the armed bandits in Niger State on Saturday. But we warn that it is not yet Uhuru and we should not celebrate too early.”
The group called on northern leaders to interrogate the extent of levity of the federal authorities in not being able to anticipate and checkmate the manoeuvres of marauding bands of criminals that roam northern communities and operate at will targeting soft spots as schools.
The group said they see the recent escalation of kidnapps of school children as a grand design to criple the educational viability of the northern region after having messed up its economy and mutual cohesion.
CNG noted that the past few days had been very difficult, for everyone, added that it has been difficult for the abducted students, difficult for parents and families of the captives emotionally, practically and of course, financially.
The group said that they were also difficult days for the government of Niger State, community leaders and elders that scrambled to reassure the public.
It noted that the situation is also difficult for absolutely everyone as they wonder about the future and worry about each other, their neighbors, friends, families and ourselves.
The group explained, “The CNG which has been on ground in Minna and addressed a press conference Friday afternoon calling for urgent action to rescue the captives feels proud today that it has once again played a major role in getting authorities to act.”
The group said it is still on ground waiting to verify the release and the condition of the captives, stressing that they shared in the joy of the parents and the Kagara community and Niger State generally.”
