The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) on Thursday, urged the Federal and state governments to prioritise security of schools to stem attacks by insurgents.
The NANS National Public Relations Officer, Mr Bestman Okereafor, in a statement in Enugu, said NANS condemned the abduction of 110 pupils of the Government Girls Science and Technical College, Dapchi, Yobe, on Feb. 19.
“This is coming at a time when the bitter experience of the Chibok abduction is still very fresh in our minds.
‘’Fifty-eight male students of the College of Agriculture, Chibok in Yobe were murdered in their sleep, ’’ he said.
He said the nation’s security and war against insurgents required a radical approach beyond ethnicity and blame shifting barter
“The Federal Government and state governments at all levels should consider mass enlightenment programmes and recruitment of more personnel for stronger security formations, aimed at tackling insurgents effectively.’’
