The Executive Secretary National Human Rights Commission, Tony Ojukwu has come out to blast the current insecurity situation in Nigeria.

Ojukwu recently revealed this when news of the abduction of some students of Government Science College Kagara, Niger State took over the media.

According to him, the frequent abduction of students undermines the right to education of the affected children, and it is time for the government to fulfil its promise to guarantee safety at all Nigerian schools.

He added that the deteriorating and alarming state of insecurity in the country is nothing to write home about, and cannot be allowed to continue.

His words, “The primary duty of government is the protection of lives and property which must not be compromised at any time. Our children must be protected from all forms of harm while enjoying their guaranteed rights to education anywhere.”

“Several other avoidable abductions have taken place like the Chibok girls saga, the unfortunate incident of Government Science and Technical College Dapchi as well as the Catholic Good Shepherd Major Seminary, Kaduna among others”. All these could have been avoided if there was proper security in place.”
