“We call on government and security agencies at all levels to ensure the unconditional release of those students and make sure that peace is restored to these communities and the criminal elements are arrested and made to face the full wrath of law. It is important to note that these bandits live in the nearby bushes to their attacked communities.
“While we condemn this barbaric act, we urge our Youth to remain calm, law abiding and vigilant so as to report any suspicious movement to the appropriate authority, ” the statement added.
