“Life first before education” – Shehu Sani advises school proprietors on Kaduna outskirts
Senator for Kaduna Central in the 8th Senate, Shehu Sani has advised school proprietors on the outskirts of the state to “do the needful” in the wake of increasing attacks on schools in the state.
Sani said in a tweet that the call became necessary following last month’s kidnap of 39 students of Federal College Of Forestry Mechanization, Afaka, and Tuesday’s kidnap of an unspecified number of students at Greenfield University located along Kasarami village off Kaduna-Abuja Road in Chikun LGA, both in Kaduna State.
Kaduna State Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan disclosed that the bodies of three of the abducted students of Greenfield were recovered from Kwanan Bature village, close to the school’s location on Friday.
One of the victims was identified as Abubakar Sadiq Yusuf Sanga, the son of Malam Yusuf Mu’azu, a director of the state’s ministry of works and a former chairman of Jemaa LGA.
The other two victims were identified as Dorathy Yohanna and Precious Nwakacha, a native of Nnewi in Anambra State.
Sani wrote, “The proprietors of schools located in the outskirts of Kaduna still operating should do the needful & not depend on luck.
“The tragedies of the College of Forestry & now Greenfield university must not extend further.
“We are under the siege of bandits; Life first before Education.”
Earlier, Sani wrote, “It’s tragic to learn that three of the students of the Kaduna Greenfield University were murdered by the bandits who abducted them.
“(May) their souls Rest In Peace.”
The civil rights activist also urged Nigerians to pray for the lives of two nurses abducted at the Kajuru Hospital on Thursday.
