Oyogist.com has learnt that the Amnesty International has condemned the incessant attacks and abductions of students in the northern part of Nigeria.

The group stated that attacks on schools undermines the student right to education.

“The abduction of girls at Government Secondary School, Jangebe is a serious violation of international humanitarian law, and it undermines the right to education for thousands of children in northern Nigeria.

“The girls abducted are in serious risk of being harmed. Nigerian authorities must take all measures to return them to safety, along with all children currently under the custody of armed groups.

“Education is under attack in northern Nigeria. Schools should be places of safety, and no child should have to choose between their education and their life. Other children have had to abandon their education after being displaced by frequent violent attacks on their communities,” Amnesty International said in a series of tweets.

Meanwhile, earlier today over 300 schoolgirls were abducted from Government Girls Secondary School, Jangebe in the Talata-Mafara Local Government Area of Zamfara State.
