Hundreds of students gathered in Kano on Monday to protest against the ongoing abduction of female students in tertiary institutions across Northern Nigeria.
The students, marching along the Rijiyar Zaki area of the city, passionately demanded the immediate rescue of their peers who were kidnapped by armed bandits from various institutions, including Federal University Gusau, Federal University, Dutsinma, and Nasarawa State University, Keffi.
The protesters specifically called for the release of about 24 female students from FUGUS and four female students from FUDMA who were abducted over three months ago and are still in captivity.
They also highlighted the plight of four students from Nasarawa State University who remain in captivity despite the passage of several months.
The protest, conducted under the banner of ‘Arewa Mufarka,’ which translates to ‘Northerners, let’s wake up,’ aimed to draw attention to the prolonged abduction crisis and the urgent need for intervention.
Speaking to journalists in Kano, the convener of the protest, Sharfuddeen Bature, expressed the frustration of the community: “We have been on the matter for long. It has been eighty days now since the abduction took place. We have ministers in our region – in Zamfara. We have the National Security Adviser, NSA, from our region. We need these girls back. Their parents are in serious condition. We are not going to stop doing this until they bring back our girls.”
