President Muhammadu Buhari has refused to visit Kankara, where some students were abducted in Daura, Katsina State, Nigerian.

Some gunmen stormed the government science school in Kankara on Friday and abducted several children.

The president rather sent a delegation instead of him visiting Kankara from Daura by himself since he was already in the state before the incidence happened.

President Buhari selected representatives of the federal government to leave Abuja, go to Katsina State to offer condolences on behalf of the victims.

On Sunday, Defense Minister General Salihi Magashi (retd.) Led a group of army chiefs to Kankara, where more than 300 children were abducted.

The Minister’s delegation includes General Abayomi Olonisakin, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar; and NIA chairman Ahmed Abubakar.

Although some individuals and groups have condemned the president’s decision to send a delegation to represent him in his home state.

A coalition of Northern Groups; the Middle Belt Forum, Ohanaeze Ndigbo and Afenifere have all come out and condemned the issue.
