The United Nations Children Education Funds, UNICEF has urged Nigeria govt to rescue the 21 children abducted in Kaduna unhurt.
The bandits abducted the 21 children at about 12.30pm last Sunday at a farm in Mairuwa Community, Faskari LGA, Katsina State.
In a statement by Ms Cristian Munduate, UNICEF Representative in Nigeria on Thursday, she disclosed that abduction of children whether at home, at school, on the farm, or anywhere else, is reprehensible. Children should never be the target of violence, especially by anyone who should be protecting them.
“We call on the authorities to take necessary action to rescue the abducted children and reunite them with their families unhurt, and without delay.
“UNICEF also calls on the authorities to rescue other persons reported to have been kidnapped on the farm at the same time the children were abducted.
“This tragic incident is yet an indication of the danger children face by acts perpetrated by people who should protect them.” She added.
