Northern Senators’ Forum demands action over incessant kidnapping in Kaduna

The Northern Senators’ Forum has lamented the kidnap of 448 persons in Kaduna state in less than one month and demanded urgent action to rescue the victims.

The chairman of the NSF, Senator Abdulaziz Yar’adua gave the call in a statement in Abuja.

Yar’Adua in his statement titled: “The recent Spate of Kidnappings in the Month of March 2024” said: “The distressing state of affairs concerning the recent wave of violence and kidnappings in the North is a major concern to the Northern Senators Forum (NSF).

“The series of events that have unfolded in Kaduna State, beginning with the kidnapping of 286 students and staff from a school on March 7th, the despicable attack on worshippers in a mosque on March 8th, the abduction of 61 more persons on March 12th, followed by 14 individuals on March 17th, and a staggering total of 87 individuals in Kujuru on March 18th, amongst others, are not only reprehensible but demand urgent and resolute action.

“We are committed to pursuing a lasting solution to this menace. We will not rest until the security situation is significantly improved and the perpetrators of these heinous acts are brought to justice.

“It is our core duty and mandate, and we will spare no effort in fulfilling it for the greater good of our people and our nation.”
