The timely intervention of Niger State Governor, Alhaji Abubakar Sani-Bello, on Friday saved the lives of students of Army Day Secondary School, Minna, attacked by some hoodlums from bleeding to death.
Two students of Army Day Secondary School were attacked by the hoodlums on their way home after school hours in front of the gate of the Niger State College of Education, Minna.
Governor Sani-Bello, who was on official assignment to Tunga Malam, in Paikoro Local Government Area, ordered his convoy to stop at the sight of the students soaked in blood from injury sustained from the attack by hoodlums. He then directed his personal physician, Dr Ahmad Shehu, to stabilise the victims before the ambulance in his convoy rushed the injured students to IBB Specialised Hospital Minna for further treatment.
The hoodlums, who were alleged to have come from the neighbouring Sango area of the state capital, took to their heels once they saw the convoy so as to avoid being arrested by the security operatives of the governor.
Governor Sani-Bello, however, directed the state Commissioner of Police, Mr Paul Yakadi, to ensure their arrest and prosecution.
He said: “This is unacceptable. We will not tolerate this impunity. How can some hoodlums attack students on their way home after school? I have directed the Commissioner of Police to ensure that all those responsible for the attacks on these students are arrested and prosecuted.
“We will continue to ensure that our people continue to enjoy relative peace and arresting the hoodlums will serve as deterrent to others with same intentions.”
“Parents and guardian should rise up to their responsibility. We have to keep watch on our children, ensure effective monitoring of our wards, the kind of company and peer group they associate themselves with.”
