Parents and families of some of the kidnapped victims of Government Science College Kagara, Niger State, have complained about the lack of communication from the government about the whereabouts of their children.
The parents, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said all assurances they have received so far came from the pages of newspapers and social media and nothing more than that.
The concerned parents also said the kidnappers have not reached out to any of the families for ransom.
“Nobody has reached out to us; they have not demanded any ransom. This experience is just better imagined because I would have preferred a hundred time for me to see the corpse of my child, decisively know that he is dead, and then honourably bury my child than going through this distress,” one of the parents said.
A father whose two children were among those kidnapped, Adamu Alaji, criticized government’s handling of the case, saying there is lack of seriousness in the whole issue.
“I can’t imagine my two sons sleeping with unknown gunmen inside the thick forest for long under this harsh cold weather, this is too unjust from the government,” he said.
