Yet another case of kidnapping of school children in Nigeria

Around 30 female and male students and as well as several school staff, were reportedly abducted by gunmen from the Federal College of Forestry Mechanization, just outside Kaduna city in the Igabi local government area – marking at least the fourth round of students kidnapped in the country since December. 2020 

The Secretary-General António Guterres called for “the immediate and unconditional release of those students that remain in captivity”. “The Secretary-General underscores that schools must remain safe spaces for children to learn without fear of violence or kidnapping or any other attacks on them”, Mr. Dujarric continued, adding that “attacks on schools and other educational facilities constitute a grave violation of children’s rights and human rights more broadly”, a UN statement said.
