Abduction not good for safety, sanctity of women- Tallen

The Minister of Women Affairs, Mrs Pauline Tallen, has said that the abduction of school children especially young girls, is not good for the safety and sanctity of womanhood.

Tallen made the assertion in a statement on Saturday in Abuja while reacting to the abduction of students of the Federal College of Forestry Mechanisation, Afaka, in Igabi Local Government Area of Kaduna state.

The minister, while condemning the act, pleaded with the abductors to return the students unharmed and safe to their parents.

“The abduction of school children especially young girls, is one too many and is not good for the safety and sanctity of womanhood.

“We have cried, pleaded, prayed and fasted for this to stop to no avail,’’ Tallen said.

She, however, expressed optimism that the Federal Government would defend its citizens, especially children and expedite action for their release.

“I am confident that the military and security agencies are on top of the situation so we must all pray for their safe rescue and release.

“I appeal strongly to the abductors of our innocent children to abandon this heinous act and return our remaining children unharmed to us and their anxious parents,’’ she said.

According to Tallen, the ministry will continue to speak out and condemn kidnapping which is a crime against humanity.
