Main opposition Peoples Democratic Party, on Thursday, staged a peaceful protest to demand the safe return of over 300 school children abducted in Kankara, Katsina State.
The protest held in front of the PDP Legacy House, Maitama, Abuja, secretariat.
Terrorists, last Friday, abducted the students from the Government Science Secondary School, Kankara, in Katsina State.
PDP National Chairman, Chief Uche Secondus, who led the protesters, said the party like most Nigerians, had become traumatised by the callous action of the criminals who abducted the children.
But the opposition party demanded that President Muhammadu Buhari and the ruling All Progressives Congress to go beyond issuing statements condemning the act by going all out to reunite the children with their parents.
Secondus said, “This is a peaceful protest to make the entire country and international community to be aware of what is going on in our country.
“And all we’re saying is that Buhari, bring back our boys from Katsina. It is important, we are in pain, the parents are in pain, the entire country is in pain, we’re in agony, we are in sorrow.
“It is high time for the government of the day, the APC government to bring back our boys from Katsina.
“That is the bold statement by PDP today with this peaceful protest.”
