He also assured the families of the victims of the FUG kidnapping that no effort would be spared to ensure the safe return of their loved ones.
Several female students of the university, resident in an off-campus hostel in Sabon Gida area of the state, were kidnapped early Friday by suspected terrorists. About the of the victims reportedly escaped captivity on Saturday.
However, the president has also pledged that his administration would do everything necessary to ensure all educational institutions across the country become secure and no longer targets of criminal elements.
He said: “President Bola Tinubu has directed security agencies to rescue the remaining female students of the Federal University Gusau, Zamfara State, who were recently abducted by terrorists.
“Condemning the reprehensible act of abduction, the President says there is no moral justification for such heinous crimes against innocent victims whose only “offense” was their pursuit of quality education.
“While the President wholeheartedly commiserates with all families directly impacted by this sad incident, he affirms that his administration has a solemn duty to protect every Nigerian citizen and in line with this commitment, assures the families of the abducted students that no effort will be spared in ensuring their safe return.
“Furthermore, the President pledges that the federal government is determined to ensure that educational institutions remain sanctuaries of knowledge, growth, and opportunity, and totally free from the menacing acts of terrorists.”
