Aisha Yesufu, co-convener of #BringBackOurGirls, BBOG, and popular activist, and Shehu Sani, a former member of the Nigerian legislature, have attacked President Muhammadu Buhari for failing to visit Kankara, a town in Katsina State where over 300 students were kidnapped at the weekend.
Police confirmed on Saturday that unknown gunmen attacked the school and over 300 students are said to be missing from the Government Science Secondary School, GSS.
The recent abduction of students has again increased concerns by Nigerians over the insecurity in the country and more worrisome is that the bandits struck not minding the presence of the President in the State.
Buhari on Friday departed Abuja to spend one week in his hometown Daura, Katsina State.
Aisha tweeted, “Just so you know, Buhari is currently in Katsina State. Terrorists attacked a school in Katsina State and took away hundreds of students. Buhari is yet to address the nation nor has he visited the parents. #KankaraStudents #SecureNigeria
“Buhari is from Katsina and has neither spoken about nor gone to see parents of #KankaraStudents and you still think Buhari has a Northern agenda?”
Adding his voice to the growing frustration, Senator Shehu Sani, tweeted, “When mortal leaders portray themselves as infallible messiahs or magicians, history has a way of giving them the time and opportunity to prove, disprove or disgrace themselves.”
