Plan International Nigeria, a non-governmental organization, says available records have shown that at least 1,409 students have been kidnapped from their schools in the country since 2020 and as many as 16 reported to have died or been murdered by the gangs.

It said as primary and secondary schools across Nigeria reopened for a new academic session, many children were unable to return to their classes due to “the unacceptable level of insecurity and abduction of students.”

It called on the Federal Government to take concrete actions to end school abduction and make education safe for all as Nigeria prepares to host the fourth international conference on safe schools declaration this month.

The organization made the call in a statement yesterday by its Interim Country Director, Robert Komakech, to commemorate Nigeria’s 61st independence anniversary.
