The United Nations of Friday described the abduction of schoolgirls from a Government Secondary School in Jangbe, Zamfara State by bandits as a “heinous violation of human rights”.
The global body also said the abducted schoolgirls must be released “immediately and unconditionally”.
UN Secretary-General, António Guterres, made this known in a statement.
“I am appalled by the abduction of more than 300 girls during an attack on a secondary school in Nigeria today. Attacks on schools are a heinous violation of human rights. The girls must be released to their families immediately and unconditionally,” he tweeted.
