UN Reacts To A Kidnap Of School Children In Nigeria


United nations Secretary-General, Antonio Guterre’s spokesperson, Stephane Dujarric, while briefing correspondents on Tuesday at the UN headquarters in New York, said his principal condemned the abduction of some students from Bethel Baptist High School, Damishi, Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State.

Gun men had on Monday abducted no fewer than 140 students from the boarding school. This is the recent of many kidnapping operations by the criminal groups in Kaduna State.

The UN correspondent of the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) quoted Dujarric as saying that Guterres condemned the kidnapping of the students.

Dujarric said, “I can tell you that the Secretary-General strongly condemns the abduction of students from the Bethel Baptist School as well as hospital employees in two separate incidents in Kaduna State on July 5.

 “The Secretary-General is disturbed by the frequency of “kidnapping for ransom” of predominantly children from schools by extremist groups and criminal networks.”

Guterres berates the effort of the government in bringing to book perpetrators of the devilish acts. He also challenged the government to enhance the safety and security of schools and educational facilities.
