Speaker Tambuwal Challenges Security Agencies To Solve Massacre of Students
Speaker of the House of Representatives, Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, has described this morning’s massacre of 30 students and a teacher in northeastern Nigeria as “ignoble, wicked and horrendous,” and challenged the security agencies to fish out the perpetrators.
The incident took place in the early hours of Saturday at Government Secondary School, Mamudo, in Potiskum LGA of Yobe State, and the Speaker said those responsible must be brought to justice.
In a statement issued in Abuja by his Special Adviser on Media and Public Affairs, Malam Imam Imam, Tambuwal said there was no justification for the dreadful crime
He stated the gains recorded by security agencies in recent weeks in their battle against terror must continue in order to ensure that citizens are protected at all times.
Expressing sympathy for the families of the victims, the Speaker urged Nigerians to be more vigilant and to help the security agencies with useful information to help secure their localities.
He said the National Assembly will, at all times, give necessary support to ensure that peace and security is restored in all parts of the country.
