Nigerian Police Force says that its operatives have commenced a coordinated search and rescue operation, involving the deployment of both ground and aerial assets, aimed at locating and rescuing the students of Government Girls Secondary School, Jangebe, Zamfara State.
The Force Spokesperson, CP Frank Mba in a statement made to newsmen a copy of which was obtained by elombah.com said, the school girls were “abducted in the early hours of Friday, 25th February, 2021.”
To ensure the success of the ongoing operation, the statement indicated that, the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu has ordered the immediate deployment of two operational surveillance helicopters to Zamfara State.
“This is in addition to the personnel of Operation Puff Adder II earlier deployed to the State to support efforts by the Command to combat banditry, kidnapping and other related crimes.”
The IGP, while condemning the barbaric and callous abduction of the innocent female students, has assured that the Police and other security forces will not relent until the abducted students are successfully rescued and reunited with their families.
The joint rescue operation is being carried out by the Police, the Military and other members of the law enforcement community with support from the State Government and other Stakeholders.
The IGP has also called for calm and enjoined members of the public, particularly the people of Zamfara State, not to hesitate in availing the Police and the law enforcement community with useful information that can assist in the rescue of the abducted school girls.
