Would-be terrorists and bandits targeting schools, were on Saturday issued a stern warning that the country will not allow the destruction of the school system.
President Muhammadu Buhari handed the warning while commending efforts of the Kaduna State Government and early response of the military, which led to the rescue of 180 students including eight staff members.
In a statement signed by Garba Shehu, Presidential Spokesman, Buhari urged that the others declared missing be found and returned safely to their families.
The President also commended efforts and contributions of local intelligence in significantly thwarting the kidnappers, saying that a country which had an efficient local intelligence network was a safer country.
Added he: “Our military may be efficient and well-armed but it needs good efforts for the nation’s defense and the local population to rise to this challenge of the moment”.
President Buhari expressed sympathy with the victims of this incident and hoped for an early end to the ordeal of those still held captive.
