Katsina school attack: Group seeks 1,000 local hunters to rescue missing boys

A Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) under the aegis of Transparency Advocacy Centre (TAC) has advised Katsina State government to engage 1,000 vigilantes in order to rescue the missing students of Government Science Secondary School, Kankara who are still under the captivity of the bandits.

This was even as it calls for the immediate implementation of community policing in the state.

Recall, the state governor, Aminu Bello Masari, had on Sunday said 333 students of the school are still missing.

The National Coordinator of the group, Shehu Yandaki, made the plea while briefing journalists on Monday.

He noted that with the ugly situation in the state, ‘we are optimistic that 1, 000 fully armed vigilante will be able to salvage the schoolboys as well as help in strengthening the security of the state.

He explained; “We expect that the Federal Government will do something to emancipate the GSS Kankara students from the captivity of armed bandits.

“The TAC is also calling for the immediate implementation of community policing, this involves arming our local vigilantes popularly known as ‘Yansakai’ with a locally made gun called ‘Jahila’.

“We believe that 1,000 personnel of vigilante armed with Jahila will be able to secure the Kankara LGA.”

The group, therefore, called on traditional blacksmith to manufacture Jahila in large quantities for the vigilante without delay.
