Buhari gave the directive on Monday in a statement by Garba Shehu, presidential spokesman.

He expressed concern over attacks on Kaduna and Niger states, which he said are largely targeted at students.

He pointed out that there is ongoing deployment of additional operatives to all troubled areas.

The president urged security outfits to “act swiftly” to rescue all abducted schoolchildren in the affected states and ensure their safe return.

The president described kidnapping as “cowardly and despicable, as well as an assault on affected families and the nation.”

Buhari stated that the disturbing incidents of students’ kidnapping, mostly in northern states, was already threatening to undermine efforts in boosting school enrolments in states that were adjudged educationally backward.

He called on state governments to ensure compliance with the United Nations-supported safe schools’ programme, which the present administration had adopted.
