UNICEF Calls For Immediate Release Of Abducted Students In Niger State

The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) has called for the “immediate and unconditional” release of the kids believed to be abducted by gunmen in north-central Nigeria.

This was contained in a statement released on Wednesday by UNICEF representative to Nigeria, Peter Hawkins strongly condemning the attack and calling for the children’s safe return to their families.

The statement read in part: “UNICEF is deeply concerned about these reported acts of violence. Attacks on schools are a violation of children’s rights. 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.

“We acknowledge the efforts being taken by the Government of Nigeria for the safe return of any missing children.”
