The Governor of Kano state, Abdullahi Ganduje has condemned in totality the recent kidnap of nine Muslim children from Kano, assuring that the culprits would be made to face the law.
Vigil360 had earlier reported that the children were kidnapped and taken to Onitsha, Anambra state where they were sold.
Governor Ganduje in a statement issued by his Press Secretary, Abba Anwar assured that those behind the heinous act would be prosecuted to serve as a deterrent to others.
“Kidnapping is seriously abhorred and condemnable. What is more worrisome is the age of the victims, kids for that matter. My administration, Kano people and any right thinking individual or groups of individuals, condemn this from all standpoints."
According to the Ganduje, no criminal will go scot-free in this and similar developments in the state.
“Government will invite the parents of those rescued from the suspected kidnappers for further discussion and relationship. At the same time, we are seriously working with the security agencies to unearth similar cases.
“We are coming up with a powerful committee that will critically look at this disturbing scenario with a view to seeing to the root cause and to avert recurrence. This and similar crimes must be stopped,” he added.
