4 According to her, it is unfortunate that Nigerians are once again forced to experience the painful loss of another child in an environment where they should be protected.

5 ”The kidnapping and eventual murder of Hanifa after collecting a ransom of six million naira from her parents is one of the most inhumane acts of evil.

6 “The murder of this innocent Nigerian girl from her school is a huge betrayal of the trust that the girl and her parents placed in the institution,” he said.

7 The National Chairman of the NCWS expressed his concern about the increasing cases of ritual killings that have taken on a terrifying dimension in Nigeria.

9 He said that the case of Aisha Umar, an internally displaced person, who was cheated and raped by a vendor leading to her suicide in Borno, was also a regrettable case.

10 “As mothers and women, it pains us that this is no longer the Nigeria we knew growing up.

11 “A Nigeria where caring for the younger generation was the responsibility of all adults and the community as a whole.

12 “Hanifa’s death is too much, since children are the most vulnerable in society and depend on the protection of adults for their development.

13 “A situation where caregivers, who should be protecting and caring for children, become predators is certainly unsustainable and needs urgent action,” he said.

14 Shoda, on behalf of the council, called on the federal government to do more to address the growing insecurity in schools and in the country in general.

15 He also urged the government to undertake an assessment of schools across the country to ensure they remain conducive and safe for learning.

16 “We must ensure justice for Hanifa and others.

17 “We need to set an indicator that no family will question the decision to enroll their ward in a school that is not safe,” he said.
