The National Orientation Agency (NOA), has sympathised with parents of the Government Girls Science Secondary School (GGSSS), Dapchi, Yobe State, over unfortunate incidence of missing children.
A statement issued yesterday by its head of Press Unit, Paul Odenyi, said; “the Agency at this time would like to caution against unnecessary speculation over the depressing incident saying at moments like these Nigerians should step up their vigilance, stand in prayers and cooperate with security agencies.”
According to the director general of the agency, Dr. Garba Abari, said President Muhammadu Buhari has already dispatched high powered government officials, including four ministers, to the area to ascertain the true state of affairs and report back to him.
He said it was necessary to remind the media and other stakeholders to be cautious and factual in their reportage and be mindful of the pains that the parents and the nation at large are passing through.
Adding that, government has deployed adequate security machinery
around the area as part of the ongoing efforts to clear the Boko Haram elements dispersed from their Sambisa Forest base with a view to restoring normalcy in all affected areas.
