PRESS RELEASE: ABDUCTION OF FEMALE STUDENTS IN CHIBOK
The abduction of about 200 final year secondary school female students in Chibok as reported by the media is another shocking story regarding the unfortunate happenings in Nigeria, especially the North.
It is quite unfortunate and, in fact painfully confusing, that despite the state of emergency imposed on Borno State for a long time with the attendant huge amount of resources earmarked for security operatives, and despite the presence of uniformed security men at checkpoints which are strategically located at closed intervals, this horrific act could still happen.
Jama'atu Nasril Islam condemns this act of barbarism in the strongest terms and calls on the authorities concerned to put all the needed efforts to free these innocent girls and get them continue with their studies.
We sympathize with the victims and their teachers and families at this traumatizing moment and pray that Allah will end their agony in the shortest possible time.
JNI also calls on all Muslims in the country to intensify Qunut and du'a so that Allah (SWT) will unveil and deal with all the perpetrators of these activities.
