The motorcade of the Governor Abubakar Sani-Bello of Niger has saved the lives of injured students of the Army Day Secondary School, Minna, attacked by hoodlums.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the governor was on the way to Abuja when he saw the unfortunate incident last Friday.
“The students were on their way home after the school closing hour. The hoodlums attacked and wounded some of the students,” a member of the team told NAN.
The governor directed the ambulance in his motorcade to rush one of the injured students, who had his hand stabbed by the hoodlums, to IBB Specialist Hospital Minna for treatment.
“I have given directive to the commissioner of police to ensure that all those responsible for the attacks on the students are arrested and prosecuted.
“We will continue to ensure that our people enjoy relative peace and arresting the hoodlums will serve as deterrent to others with the same intentions.
“I am using this medium to call on parents to caution their children on the kind of peer group they associate with,’’ he said.
Sani-Bello said the state government would not allow people with criminal tendencies to disrupt the stability in the state.
