  • PublishedJuly 24, 2017

Acting President Yemi Osinbajo has assured parents and guardians of parents of the kidnapped students not to lose hope on the return of their wards, that the Federal Government in collaboration with state authorities are working tirelessly to ensure their safe return.

Recall that on May 25, six secondary school boys of the school were abducted by unknown gunmen, this is even as four students and six staff of the same school were also kidnapped in October 2016.

In a chat with newsmen on the sideline of the birthday thanksgiving service of Pastor Salami Ololade in Lagos on Sunday, the Acting President said though “it is very a traumatic experience for the parents, there should be no doubt at all about the commitment of the government.’’

According to Osinbajo, “ I don’t know how many times the governor has spoken to me about this and the police Inspector General, the Commissioner of Police, the DSS and even the Armed Forces.’’

“I am sure these children will return as quickly as possible, so we look forward to their return.’’

Recall that the Lagos state government also banned summer school for students currently on holiday as part of efforts to curb the spate of kidnaps within the state.
