The head of the Anglican Church, the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, described the abduction of students at the Jangebe School in Zamfara State as “unfortunate”.

In a message posted on his Twitter account, the Archbishop said the security failure was “catastrophic”.

“The wave of mass kidnappings from schools in Nigeria is an appalling crime. ” he said. “The failures of the security services are catastrophic.”

He further prayed for the students: ” I pray for the swift and safe release of children and teachers – and for justice, security and peace in Nigeria.”.

The Nigerian government on Sunday denied rumours that they had been released by gunmen who abducted the children on Friday night.
