Following the abduction of students and staff of the Government Science College, Kagara, last week, Governor Abubakar Bello of Niger State has revealed that he has received “little or no support” from the federal government to rescue the victims.

Bandits abducted the persons, including 27 students, three workers and 12 members of their families in the school located in Rafi Local Government Area of Niger State.

According to a statement by the governor’s media aide, Mary Noel-Berje, on Thursday, Mr Bello made the remarks during a visit by a former Abia governor, Orji Kalu, in Minna.

Mr Kalu, who was in Niger to sympathise with the governor over the incident, had called on the federal government to set up a joint security committee to expedite action for the release of the abducted persons.

In his response, Mr Bello “supported the call from Mr Kalu, pointing out that at the moment, he has little or no support from the government at the centre but reiterated the state government’s commitments to securing the release of the abductees,” the statement noted.

The statement, however, did not elaborate on the area of support the federal government was failing to offer.
