Students Abduction: Army Making Reassuring Noises, Says Mailafia

Former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Obadiah Mailafia, has advised the Nigerian Army to stop making reassuring noises and secure the release of students abducted from the Government Science Secondary School, Kankara, Katsina State, last Friday.

Recall that bandits last Friday kidnapped the student a few hours after President Muhammadu Buhari arrived in the state.

Mailafia in his reaction to the incident noted that bandits must be treated as terrorists because they are enemies of the state.

The former Deputy CBN Governor stated this while speaking on Arise TV on Monday.

Mailafia said,

“My heart goes out to the parents who must be going through a traumatising, agonising time.”

“The security forces must do everything they can. We’ve heard some reassuring noises from the Army, saying that they have zeroed down on the exact location of the bandits and where the children are being held.”

“All those children must be brought back alive and brought back to their parents. This is not a time for braggadocio. This is not the time for machismo. This is the time to ensure that we bring them (the students) back safely.”
