This was recently revealed in a press statement by the UNICEF Representative in Nigeria, Peter Hawkins, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to him, UNICEF is very saddened by yet another brutal attack on schoolchildren in Nigeria, as it is a gross violation of children’s rights and a horrific experience for kids to go through.
UNICEF then called on the government, and all other leaders concerned to make schools safe for students and pupils in Nigeria.
His words, “UNICEF is angered and saddened by yet another brutal attack on schoolchildren in Nigeria.”
“This is a gross violation of children’s rights and a horrific experience for children to go through – one which could have long-lasting effects on their mental health and well-being. We utterly condemn the attack and call on those responsible to release the girls immediately and for the government to take steps to ensure their safe release and the safety of all other schoolchildren in Nigeria.”
“Children should feel safe at home and at school at all times – and parents should not need to worry for the safety of their children when they send them off to school in the morning,”
“UNICEF acknowledges efforts being made by the Government of Nigeria to secure the release of kidnapped schoolchildren in Nigeria and calls on the government and all concerned to make schools safe in Nigeria.”
