Erstwhile Vice-President of Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar, has urged the federal government to create a School Protection Standby Unit.

According to him, the unit will be deployed exclusively to protect schools in areas prone to attacks across the country.

Atiku stated this in a Twitter post while condemning the abduction of students of Government secondary schools in Zamfara State.

It would be recalled that gunmen suspected to be bandits on Wednesday attacked a Secondary School in Maradun Local Government Area of Zamfara State and abducted 73 students.

”I am saddened by reports of yet another abduction of students in Zamfara. For a region that’s playing catch-up in the critical area of education, this continued assault on the bedrock of our development is not acceptable.

”Perhaps the time has come to have a School Protection Standby Unit deployed exclusively to protect schools in areas prone to these attacks. If we don’t take preemptive actions, I fear that education in the already disadvantaged regions may suffer irreversible losses.

”Meanwhile, I hope that no effort will be spared for a speedy recovery of the students.”
