UNICEF condemns attack on Government Science College, Kagara

UNICEF has condemned the Tuesday February 16  attack on students and staff of the Government Science College in Kagara, in Niger State.

A statement by the UNICEF Nigeria Representative Peter Hawkins described the attack as a violation of the children’s rights and called for their immediate release.

“UNICEF condemns in the strongest possible terms any attack on a school and calls for the immediate and unconditional release of any children who may be missing, and their safe return to their families.”

“UNICEF is deeply concerned about these reported acts of violence. Attacks on schools are a violation of children’s rights. Children should feel safe at home and at school at all times – and parents should not need to worry for the safety of their children when they send them off to school in the morning.”

“We acknowledge the efforts being taken by the Government of Nigeria for the safe return of any missing children,” the statement said.
