First Lady Urges Security Agencies To Up Their Game

First Lady Oluremi Tinubu has challenged security agencies to step up their game in the task of ridding the country of all forms of insecurity, including kidnapping.

 

“I implore our security agencies to intensify their efforts in addressing the pressing matter of kidnappings and other forms of insecurity in our nation,” Senator Tinubu said while reacting to the upsurge in abductions, especially in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

 

Her challenge is contained in a statement she authored yesterday, in reaction to the kidnap of a National Population Commission(NPC) senior official Mansoor Al-Kadriyar, his six children and others from Bwari Local Government Area a week ago.

 

As of yesterday, the kidnappers had killed some of their victims and raised their ransom demands from N60 million to N700 million.

 

The First Lady, in the statement, expressed sadness over the development and called for prayers for the victims.

 

She wrote: “It is with a heavy heart that I acknowledge the devastating loss of Nabeeha and extend my deepest condolences to her grieving family.

 

“In difficult moments like this, I urge the nation to join in fervent prayers for the safe return of these girls. Let us hold the families close to our hearts in prayers.

 

“I implore our security agencies to intensify their efforts in addressing the pressing matter of kidnappings and insecurity in our nation. The safety and swift return of the Al-Kadriyar sisters and others in captivity should be our paramount concern.

 

“To the parents, especially mothers, I appeal for intensified prayers for our children and for peace to prevail in our beloved country.

 

May the Almighty God comfort the Al-Kadriyar family for their loss and may God bring the other children back home safely.

 

“God Bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria”
