The Executive Secretary Nigeria Christian Pilgrim Commission, Rev. Yakubu Pam has strongly condemned in clear terms the recent Kidnapp of female students of the Federal University Gusau, Zamfara State at the early hours of Friday, 22nd September, 2023 at Sabo-Gida area of Zamfara State.
Rev. Pam who also doubles as the Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN 19 Northern states and FCT, described the action of the bandits as callous and barbaric. He further frowned at such wicked and dastardly act of the abductors who capitalized on the fact that the abductees were harmless female students who could not have resisted them because of their vulnerability.
To this effect, he described the action of the kidnappers as an act of cowardice.
Rev Pam a global Peace Ambassador and the founder of Southern Kaduna Peace Joint Committee ,called on security agencies to quickly swing into action by rescuing the abducted female students from their abductors.
He stressed the need for the government to ensure that the hostels of the female students of the Federal University, Gasau are protected and manned by security personnel in order to forestall a repeat of such heinous crime.
The NCPC boss further called on the parents of the abductees to be patient and exercise some degree of faith that their children would be rescued alive and brought to them safely.
He maintained that the issue of security is in the front burner of the present administration of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu and has vowed to stop at nothing until Nigerians can sleep with their two eyes close.
Rev. Pam further called on the Chief of Defence staff, the Chief of Army staff as well as the Inspector General of Police to join forces in order to fish out the perpetrators of this act of in humanity against these innocent female students.
It is my conviction that in no -too -distant time the security challenges being experienced in most parts of the country, especially in the north, would soon be a thing of the past, considering the caliber of those in the helm of affairs of our security agencies, coupled with the determination of Mr President to put an end to this ugly situation that has embarrassed our people .
Under the Renewed Hope mantra of this administration , insecurity has no hiding place, he said.
