He described the abduction as barbaric, inhuman, condemnable and uncultured which is capable of plunging “us  back to the dark stone age, where inhumanity took the center stage”.

According  to him, if not for sadism, why should innocent children, mostly underaged be subjected to an emotional, psychological and mental trauma, describing the ugly act as  mischievous and uncalled for.

“The APC is therefore join government and people of the state, parents, guardians in mourning the unfortunate happening.

“We are calling  on the government and security agencies to as a matter of responsibility ensure safe rescue of the innocent students.

 “While we averse  the act and condemned it in totality, we urge the state populace and well wishers of Zamfara to remain steadfast in prayers for their quick, safe of the children, rescue and their joyful re-union to their respective families”, Liman explained.

“It is pertinent for us at this critical time to draw the attention of the PDP led government in the state to the fact that the issue of security of lives and property of the citizenry is beyond politics and rhetorics so it should be treated as such.

“Security is the primary responsibility of any responsible government, therefore it shouldn’t be towed or treated with laxity, melodious public utterances or blemish comments for the purpose of achieving a political ambitions, words should be matched with actions.

“There is no point to be paying lip service by the state government about the true security situation of the state while the citizens silently groaning with guttural sounds under the shackles of armed bandits who have found Zamfara State as a safe haven courtesy of the state sovernment’s so called peace accord with them”, he added.

“It is no longer news that despite the peace accord of the PDP led government in the state armed bandits, have continue lunching fatal attacks and kidnapping for ransom, maiming, raping, arson and other atrocities against the peace loving populace of the state,  and the situation is on the increase in almost every part of our dear State.

“We therefore implore the Zamfara state government to as a matter of  responsibility to reorganize its security architecture to properly secure the state and salvage it from the hands of the bandits as people of the state are no longer interested in your lips services and untimely politicking of buying unpopular politicians with the state resources instead of concentrating on securing the state”, Liman said.
