Incessant Killings, Kidnappings In Our Region Troubling – Northern Senators

The Northern Senators Forum (NSF) has expressed concerns over the renewed wave of killings, and kidnappings in the region.

In a statement on Thursday by the Chairman of the Forum, Senator Abdulaziz Yar’adua, the lawmakers described the reprehensible development as worrisome.

They vow to provide lasting solutions to the issue and ensure that those behind the heinous acts face the full wrath of the law.

The northern region has experienced a return of large-scale abduction with over 600 persons kidnapped in recent weeks.

Recall that on March 7, 2024, 286 students and staff were abducted in Kaduna.

Over 300 internally displaced persons, mostly women and children, were abducted by Boko Haram Terrorists in Borno State in the first week of March.

The statement reads, “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.”
