The 2023 Social Democratic Party, SDP, presidential candidate, Prince Adewole Adebayo, has said President Bola Tinubu, the National Security Adviser, Mallam Nuhu Ribadu, the Nigeria Police and the Department of State Services, DSS, can end the menace of kidnapping in the Federal Capital Territory, FCT.
He lamented that the federal government has failed in protecting the citizens, which is its primary responsibilities.
Posting on X, the former presidential candidate wondered why Nigerians continue to suffer in the hands of bandits and kidnappers.
Adebayo said: “As we bemoan and dread bandits and kidnappers, we must bemoan and suspect our government more. It is the duty of the government to stop criminality.
“If @officialABAT, @NuhuRibadu, @PoliceNG and @OfficialDSSNG want to end kidnapping today, they have all it takes. Government is in on it.”
Lately, bandits had attacked and abducted some residents in Bwari Area Council of the FCT.
Similarly, gunmen on Thursday night invaded Hilltop Phase 2 Extension of the Nigerian Army Post-Housing Estate and abducted the wife of a popular lawyer, Barrister Cyril Adikwu and two others.
Newspot gathered that the heavily armed men invaded the area around 9 pm, shooting sporadically to scare residents.
Despite military presence in the estate, the kidnappers whisked the victims away.
