Parents, Mates of Abducted Kaduna Students Protest at National Assembly

Parents of the abducted students of the College of Forestry Mechanisation, Afaka in Kaduna State, have occupied the National Assembly complex, Abuja, in protest.

The protesters, which include members of the Students Union Government (SUG) of the institution are lamenting over what they described as the negligence of the state and Federal Government in securing the release of the children.

They chanted songs of solidarity and displayed placards demanding prompt rescue of the students.

“Education is our right! Safety is our right! Freedom is our right! Free Afaka 29! ” the parents and students chanted as they marched to the National Assembly.

The protesters, joined by the Publisher of Sahara Reporters, Omoyele Sowore and Deji Adeyanju, had earlier gathered at the Unity Fountain before proceeding to the National Assembly complex.

The main entrance of the National Assembly was however manned by security agents who denied the protesters entrance.

On 11th March 2021, we reported 39 students were abducted from their hostels in the college.

Ten students have so far been released in two batches of five each.
