Mr Lawan in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media Ola Awoniyi in Abuja expressed sadness and outrage over the abduction.

He said the incident happened while efforts were still being made to rescue those abducted a week ago at another secondary school in Kagara, Niger State.

The Senate President said the recurrent attacks on schools and other acts of banditry call for intense soul searching on how the nation arrived at this sorry pass and how to cage the monster of violent crimes in Nigeria.
