The senate leader, Ahmed Ibrahim Lawan, warned on Thursday that security agents should do more to secure schools because Boko haram insurgents have found their abduction to be a goldmine.
Speaking to newsmen after a visit to governor Ibrahim Gaidam in Damaturu, the senate leader said the schoolgirls abduction is a big lesson to them as government.
He said the National Assembly has asked the Federal Government to ensure that all necessary measures are taken to ensure that the girls returned to their parents and the case of abduction became history in the country.
“We will continue to push and monitor the development as they go especially those of us from this state will have interest to know that there is no hindrance or delay in chasing the insurgents to recover the girls and brought to their families and eventually to their schools.
“After the Chibok girls` abduction where over 200 girls were abducted and we are still struggling to get some of them back, we should have had a better security arrangement around our schools especially the girls schools”, he said.
Lawan explained that he was satisfied with the attention gien to the situation but wasn’t satisfied with the security arrangement before the incident.
“As Muslim, we believe that God destined that this thing will happen no matter what. But it is also important that we take the words of the Lord and do the right thing and leave the rest to God.
He commended President Buhari for the prompt response to the incident, by asking the military to move in and sending the high-powered delegation to the state governor, parents and the affected community.
