“As a Senator representing the area, I extend my deepest sympathy to all the parents and families of the pupils and Students abducted at Kuriga and all those that loss their precious Lives.

“Although our security forces are working assiduously to bring our children back safely, I urged governments at all levels and our security forces to be more proactive, rather than reactive in dealing decisively with miscreants terrorizing our communities,” it said.

According to him, despite all the efforts and successes recorded by the security forces to curtail attacks by terrorists there is the need to take the fight to the door step of the terrorist enclave.
