ASO ROCK WATCH: As Buhari gets a bloody nose in Kankara. Two other talking points

By Marlikberry,
Each passing day, Nigeria’s security challenges take a dangerous twist.
It would seem that the one who steers the ship of governance from Aso Rock, President Muhammadu Buhari, has run short of ideas as he got a bloody nose in Kankara, Katsina State, Friday.
The Aso Rock Villa was, by every measure, in the throes of heightened tension last week.
On December 11th 2020, President Buhari, as was expected, strongly condemned the attack by supposed bandits at Government Science Secondary School in Kankara, Katsina State.
Reports say the bandits, on motorcycles with assault rifles, engaged security forces in a gun battle, forcing hundreds of students to flee and hide in the school’s surrounding forest. The horrible incident which occurred around 9.40pm, last week Friday, has seen authorities dishing out conflicting figures of students who had been abducted or missing from the school which is said to have a population of 839 students.
“I strongly condemn the cowardly bandits’ attack on innocent children at the Science School, Kankara. Our prayers are with the families of the students, the school authorities and the injured,” Buhari said in a statement by his Senior Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu.
My people wonders shall never end in the beautiful world.
