Amnesty International (AI) has called on the Federal Government to secure the safe release of over 687 people who were abducted by insurgents in Borno and Kaduna states.

While reacting to the incidents in a statement yesterday, the Director of Amnesty International Nigeria, Mr Isa Sanusi, said the kidnappings are a “shocking indictment of the authorities’ persistent failure to protect people from attacks by armed groups that have killed thousands of Nigerians in the last five years”.
According to Amnesty International, the current approach adopted by President Bola Tinubu’s administration is not working.

It also called on those with command responsibilities for security in the areas where the abductions took place to be held to account for the glaring failures that have put the lives of hundreds of people in danger.
