The CDHR made these known according to a communique issued on Sunday by the National Publicity Secretary of CDHR, Peter Ekine, after its National Executive Committee meeting held on Saturday in Lagos.

The organisation said the abduction of 110 female students of the Government Science Technical School, Dapchi in Yobe state by Boko Haram insurgents is “a direct violation of their right to education and all other rights provided under the Child Rights Act”.

The CDHR also commiserated with the families of all the victims of insurgency in the North-East and urged the security agencies to step up their activities and ensure the safe rescue of all the girls and all citizens held by the insurgents.

It also condemned the senseless murder of four UN aid workers in Rann, Borno State and commiserated with the United Nations and the families of the murdered and kidnapped workers.
