President Goodluck Jonathan has ordered security agencies especially the inspector general of police, to take all necessary steps to locate and rescue the foreign construction workers who were abducted from their camp by terrorists last Saturday in Bauchi State.
In a statement by the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Dr. Reuben Abati, President Jonathan also commiserated with the family of the guard who was reportedly killed in the attack on Jama’are, Bauchi State.
He assured the relatives of the kidnapped foreign workers as well as the governments of their countries that the Federal Government and its security agencies were doing everything possible to find their abductors and ensure the safe release of all those they abducted.
The president condemned the kidnapping of the workers and reaffirmed the Federal Government’s total commitment to stamping out all forms of terrorism and criminal abduction in the country. He urged all Nigerians and foreigners in the country to go about their normal business with the assurance that the government and the security agencies were working tirelessly to curb threats to security in all parts of the country.
