Katsina school attack: Tell Nigerians if Buhari is dead or alive – Pastor Giwa begs Adeboye


The Senior Pastor of Awaiting The Second Coming Of Christ Ministry, Adewale Giwa, on Monday, begged the General Overseer of Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye to tell Nigerians whether or not President Muhammadu Buhari is alive or dead.

The cleric also urged the service chiefs to cover their faces in shame over the abduction of more than 300 schoolboys in Kankara, Kastina State.

In a statement he made public on Monday, Giwa, in his reaction to the ugly incident begged “Pastor Adeboye and those who supported the APC to win the 2015 election to tell Nigerians whether or not President Muhammadu Buhari is alive or dead.”

Recall that more than 300 schoolboys are still missing after gunmen attacked a secondary school in Kankara, a town in Nigeria’s northwestern Katsina state, authorities said.

Attackers on motorcycles stormed the all-boys Government Science School late on Friday and engaged security forces in a fierce gun battle, forcing hundreds of students to flee and hide in the surrounding forest.

However, Pastor Giwa wondered why “the nation would have a president who could not lay his life for his citizens by protecting them.”

The cleric added, “By now, nobody should have advised the service chiefs to resign before they do so.”

Earlier today, the Katsina State Governor, Aminu Masari, has said the abductors of at least 333 students of Government Science Secondary School, Kankara, have contacted his government.

He made this known when he briefed President Muhammadu Buhari when he visited him in his country home in Daura. But he didn’t say if any ransom was demanded.

Masari briefed the President who is also in the state on the ongoing efforts to secure the release of the abducted students of Government Science School in the Kankara area of the state.

Buhari has come under fire for failing to visit the community where the attack on the school took place or the school itself but instead chose to visit his cows in Daura on Monday. He rather sent a delegation from Abuja to visit the school and sympathise with the families of the victims, and to also visit the state governor.
