Presidential spokesman, Garba Shehu, on Saturday says the President, Major-General Muhammadu Buhari (retd), has warned bandits and aspiring terrorists that Nigeria will not allow them to destroy its school system.

The presidential aide also said that Buhari commended the efforts of troops and vigilante groups who made the rescue of 180 students and eight staff members possible from their abductors.

Garba stated this in a series of tweets via his verified Twitter handle @GarShehu.

He tweeted, “President Muhammadu Buhari on Saturday issued a stern warning to would-be terrorists and bandits targeting schools, saying the country will not allow the destruction of the school system.

President Buhari commended efforts of the Kaduna State government and early response of the military, which led to the rescue of 180 students, including eight staff members but urged that the others declared missing be found and returned safely to their families.

“The President also commended efforts and contributions of local intelligence in significantly thwarting the kidnappers, saying that a country which has an efficient local intelligence network is a safer country.

“Our military may be efficient and well-armed, but it needs good efforts for the nation’s defense and the local population must rise to this challenge of the moment.”

He also stated that “Buhari expressed sympathy with the victims of this incident and hoped for an early end to the ordeal of those still held captive.”
