Ododo assured the safe return of the abducted students, promising to employ various measures, including non-kinetic approaches, to achieve this.

He said:

“It is our duty as a government to protect lives and property in all parts of the state. We are prepared to protect the students and that is why we allowed the students to stay on the campus.

“We installed CCTV cameras in all the classrooms and the entire perimeter of the university campus. Yet on the day of the attack, our investigation so far revealed that all the cameras were switched off and this can only be attributed to sabotage by internal collaborators.

“Our security agencies are on their heels and the investigation is ongoing. All our students shall return safely and the perpetrators shall be brought to book”, the governor assured.

He added that the authorities had more information to work on and effect justice:

“I am here to see things myself; to assess the situation and also to review the ongoing operation that will ensure the safe return of the students to the school. What is most important now is how to rescue our students unhurt.

“We have the right information at our disposal but we can’t put all that out in the media. I want the parents and students to be calm as we are making a concerted effort to secure the return of the students.”
