In a statement released on Thursday in Abuja, NSCDC spokesman Babawale Afolabi conveyed Audi’s assurances during a visit to Kaduna State Governor, Senator Uba Sani.

The abduction, which involved approximately 200 students and teachers from Government Secondary School and LEA Primary School in Kuriga Chikun LGA, sparked widespread concern. However, Audi emphasized the NSCDC’s commitment to collaborate with other security agencies to ensure the swift and safe return of the abducted individuals.

“Your Excellency Sir, as a matter of concern, let me on behalf of the NSCDC management and personnel across the nation say that we are ready to work in collaboration with all relevant security agencies with full mechanism and security apparatus put in place to see that the perpetrators of this heinous crime do not go scot-free,” Audi affirmed.

Highlighting the NSCDC’s pivotal role in national security and its leadership in the Safe Schools Initiative, Audi underscored the Corps’s cooperation with the Nigerian Army, Police, and other stakeholders in the rescue mission.

During the meeting, Audi commended Governor Uba Sani for providing essential logistics to bolster the State Command’s operational efficiency. He also appealed for the allocation of a suitable permanent command site and operational vehicles to enhance the Corps’s capacity in safeguarding critical national assets and infrastructure across the state.

In response, Governor Sani praised the NSCDC’s proactive stance and effective collaboration with other security agencies.
