Former lawmaker, Senator Shehu Sani has reacted to the conflicting number of students kidnapped by gunmen in Government Science Secondary School, Kankara.
Recall that the Governor of Katsina State, Aminu Masari had said that 333 students were still missing from the school.
However, the Presidency on Sunday through the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, claimed only ten students were abducted.
Reacting to this development, the former lawmaker on his Twitter page condemned the reports of conflicting numbers, saying the incident calls for empathy and action, no matter the numbers.
Sani noted that it was still a failure of duty to protect, even if just one person was kidnapped.
Whenever people are killed or kidnapped,the next comes disagreements in figures of the casualties or victims;even if its one,it’s still a tragedy resulting from failure of duty to protect or prevent;And that calls for empathy and action.
