Following these reports, the president has directed the Armed Forces and Police to ensure immediate and safe return of all the captives.

The president, according to a statement by Garba Shehu, his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity,  has also dispatched to Minna, Niger State, a team of security chiefs to coordinate the rescue operation and meet with state officials, community leaders, as well as parents and staff of the college.

President Buhari has assured of the support of his administration to the Armed Forces in their struggle against terrorism and banditry and urged them to do all that can be done to bring an end to this saga, and avoid such cowardly attacks on schools in the future.

“Our prayers are with families of the victims of this attack,” said the president as he condemned as cowardly the attack on innocent school children.
