Of the abducted students, 23 students escaped and returned home two of them with bullet wounds. The abducted students are aged between 14 and 19.

“We reiterate that attacks on schools and abduction of learners are a gross violation of children’s rights, and a horrific experience for children to go through one which could have long-lasting effects on their mental health and overall well-being,” said Hawkins.

“Schools must be safe; no child should experience any harm because they went to school, and no parent should come to grief for sending their children to learn,” said Hawkins.
