Deeply hurt parents of the abducted students of College of Forestry Mechanisation, Afaka in Kaduna State, today, Tuesday May 4, staged a protest at the National Assembly complex, Abuja, demanding the timely government intervention to rescue their wards.
The aggri parents who were joined in the marxhi by members of the institution’s Students Union Government SUG, displayed placards and chanted solidarity songs to express their disappointment with the way the Nigerian government has handled the abduction of their children and colleagues. They accused the government of negligence.
Human rights activists, Omoyele Sowore and Deji Adeyanju, who joined in the protest also expressed disappointment with the handling of security by the government.
Five of the abducted students have been killed while 17 of them are still with the kidnappers who are threatening to kill them if the N100million ransom isn’t paid.
