Parents of the children of Babington Macaulay Seminary School, where three schoolgirls were abducted, are holding a prayer session for the safe return of the children.
The parents, some with broken voices and teary eyes, gathered at the school’s auditorium for the prayers.
Some top officials of the Anglican Communion expressed the hope that the pupils would be rescued unhurt.
Many of the parents, however, accused the school authorities of not providing adequate security within the boarding area.
An angry parent, who refused to give her name, said she would not allow her daughter to sleep in the school’s hostel today.
Another parent said the authorities concentrated security at the entrance of the school while there was none within the hostel area.
