Former Kaduna Central Senator, Shehu Sani has lamented the hardship that kidnap victims pass through in the hands of their abductors.
Sani in a Tweet on Wednesday said the bandits who kidnap people sexually and physically assault their victims on a daily basis.
He added that the victims enjoy no comfort for as long as they remain in their kidnapper’s den.
He thereafter said everything must be done to secure the release of the students of Federal College of Forestry Mechanisation, Afaka, Kaduna State, who were kidnapped about two weeks ago from their hostel.
He wrote: “When bandits abduct, they don’t keep their victims in Comfort until ransom is paid. They physically molest them & sexually assault them on a daily basis. It’s an unimaginable horror for the victims, every hour. Everything must be done to secure the release of the Forestry college students.”

It will be recalled that the bandits who kidnapped the students on 11th March later released videos of the students in their captivity and demanded N500m for their release.
The students were shown in deplorable conditions with their abductors threatening that they won’t be released until ransom is paid for them.
Meanwhile, renowned Islamic scholar, Sheikh Abubakar Ahmad Gumi has again called on the federal government to grant amnesty to bandits to assure them of safety and rehabilitation when they drop their arms.
Newspot reports that he stated this on Wednesday during a virtual event hosted by the National Institute for Legislative and Democratic Studies.
