Lalong said there was no justification for the murder of the innocent students who were simply in school to study and prepare themselves for service to the nation.

He said northern governors would continue to engage the Federal Government and security agencies ,towards finding a lasting solution to kidnapping and other criminal activities especially in schools in the region.

He expressed concern that the heinous act would have great implications for the future of education in the region and the nation at large.

While commiserating with the families of the murdered students, Lalong called for the immediate and unconditional release of the other students and staff of the school still in captivity.

The forum also commiserated with the government and people of Kano State, over the demise of the mother of Emirs of Kano and Bichi, Hajiya Maryam Ado Bayero.

The chairman described her as a loving, humble and exemplary mother , who devoted her life to instilling positive values to the younger generation and also promoting peaceful coexistence among different groups.

He therefore condoled with the royal family and prayed to God to grant her eternal rest.
