The Northern Governors Forum has condemned another attack on Government Secondary School, Jangebe in Zamfara State where hundreds of school girls were abducted.
In a statement, Chairman of the Forum and Governor of Plateau State Simon Lalong said this trend is unacceptable and strong measures must be taken to put an end to it before it escalates into a monster that would consume educational pursuit and national aspirations.
Governor Lalong said this development, which is coming on the heels of the abduction of school children in Kagara, Niger State still being addressed, calls for serious concerns among all Nigerians.
The Northern Governors therefore urged security agencies to use every asset at their disposal to rescue the children and bring to justice those behind the act and called on Nigerians to support the security agencies and government with credible information that will lead to swift resolution of the situation.
Lalong sympathised with the families of the abducted school children, the people and Government of Zamfara State, assuring them of the support of the Forum in tackling the problem.
