Schoolgirls’ Rescue: Anglican Primate Commends Police
The Anglican Primate, Arch Bishop Nicholas Okoh, has commended the Governor of Lagos, Akinwunmi Ambode and the Commissioner of Police, Fatai Owoseni for the rescue of the three girls abducted from Babington Macaulay Junior Seminary.
Arch Bishop Okoh, who led a delegation from the Anglican Church, praised the promptness of the rescue efforts for the abducted schoolgirls.
Describing his visit as a “thank you visit”, he told Channels TV that the Church was grateful for “what the Police has done under the leadership of the Governor of the state”.
“We believe that they have performed exceptionally well,” he said.
Speaking about the kidnap of the girls, he said, “I was very devastated because (they were) young women out in the cold day and night. We couldn’t sleep.
“So when we got the news that they have been rescued, we bounced back.”
He disclosed that the Anglican Church has since raised the standard of security at the school in terms of physical structure and also employed more security personnel to guard the school.
“We seek to work more closely with the Police and other security agencies,” he added.
In his reaction, the Commissioner of Police said that the visit was a morale booster which would encourage the Police to do more.
