10 teachers killed, 50 others kidnapped in Kaduna – ASUSS


Bandits have killed at least 10 teachers and abducted about 50 others in Kaduna State, the Academic Staff Union of Secondary Schools (ASUSS), Kaduna State chapter, disclosed.

 Ishaya Dauda, the Chairman, ASUSS Kaduna State chapter, made this revelation while speaking to newsmen in Kaduna on Wednesday, October 5, as part of activities to commemorate the 2022 World Teachers’ Day.

Ishaya said: "More than 10 secondary school teachers were killed and over 50 others abducted from January till date in Kaduna and the abducted teachers are still in captivity."

 He then called on the state governor Nasir El-Rufai to employ every means possible to ensure the release of all teachers and other victims still in captivity in Kaduna State.

Ishaya said the Academic Staff Union of Secondary Schools is aware of efforts being made by the State government towards the recruitment of Kaduna State vigilante service to secure the schools against the incessant attacks by terrorists.

 He hailed the efforts of Governor El-Rufai in prompt payment of teachers’ salaries and enjoined the governor to ensure prompt payment of retirees’ benefits to ease the hardship of those that have retired from service.

 He appealed to Governor El-Rufai to facilitate the promotion of their members which had been delayed since 2020, saying that ASUSS, like any other trade union, has enjoyed the goodwill of the Kaduna State Government.

 He added that ASUSS was working in partnership with the office of the Head of Service, the Kaduna State Ministry of Education, the Kaduna Teachers’ Service Commission and other relevant stakeholders towards ensuring better welfare for its members in terms of recruitment, promotion and other welfare packages.
