The students who took to the streets of Yola ,the Adamawa state capital alongside the management staff of the institution yesterday expressed their grievances over the abduction of the Chibok school girls adding that the act was inhuman and barbaric and needs the collaboration all to fight against the abductors.
The protesting students who carried placards with the inscription “ Boko Haram: release these girls or face the wrath of God” while another placard read” FG step up search”.
They said that they were pain with the abduction given the psychological and emotional trauma that the abducted students would be going through coupled with absence of their fatherly and motherly warmth’s occasioned by the abduction.
