Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari has been mandated to immediately rescue students of Government Science Secondary School, Kankara, Katsina State abducted on Friday by bandits.


Nigerians took to social media to blast the President over the state of security in the north.


The President had arrived in the state on Friday, hours before the abduction took place but failed to visit the community three days after the incident.


A google map check by SaharaReporters showed that the distance between Daura, Buhari’s hometown and Kankara is 190km, a journey of less than 3-hours if the President decided to travel by road.


Using the hashtag #BringBackOurBoys, Nigerians on Twitter berated Buhari over the high rate of insecurity in the country.


They also called on the President, who is currently in Daura, to show empathy by visiting the scene of the incident.
