Reports coming in indicates that kidnapped schoolgirls of Government Secondary School in Jangebe, Zamfara State have been released, they are currently in the palace of Emir of Anka waiting to be transported to Gusau, the state capital.
After their kidnap on Friday President Muhammadu Buhari said the reason he has not used the military to go all out to secure the release of the kidnapped victims and wipe out the bandits in Nigeria is because he does not want the kidnapped victims to lose their lives. However, now that the victims have been released, I believe the Nigeria government can deploy the military into the forest to do the necessary thing before the bandits mobilize for their next target
There have been series of kidnapping of students from their schools in the Northern part of the country since last December till date. On Friday armed bandit stormed the Government Secondary School and kidnapped over 300 girls and took them to a forest between Dangulbi and Sabon Birnin Banaga in the Maru Local Government Area of Zamfara State.
In December last year about 300 School boys of the Government Science Secondary School in Kankara, Katsina State were kidnapped. Also a week ago bandits kidnapped students of Government Science College in Kagara, Niger State. They were released on Saturday.
Many Nigerians have been complaining that Governments are paying ransom for their release that may be the reason the kidnapping has not stopped, they are also calling on the Federal Government to send the military into the forest to wipe out the bandits.
However, addressing some of the concerns raised by Nigerians, President Muhammadu Buhari said on Friday that the reason they have not used extreme force against the bandits is because of the people they kidnapped as hostage which could lead to loss of innocent lives.
Considering the fact that the kidnapping has been going on for a long time, the government cannot fold its hands and watch bandits take over the country, government should take advantage of this moment that the schoolgirls have been released to confront the bandits following laid down rules.
This is my opinion on what I think the Government should do, if you have a better opinion you can share it with us by making a comment below.
