Senator representing APC Kano South in the Senate, Kabiru Ibrahim Gaya has called on the leadership of the National Assembly to as a matter of urgency institute a proper investigation to unravel the circumstances surrounding the kidnap of nine children from Kano State allegedly found in Anambra State last week.
In a motion on the floor of Senate, “Empowering the National Agency for Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTlP) to Address the Scourge of Kidnapping and Human Trafficking,” Senator Gaya urged the Senate to engage all security agencies in the country to get to root of this kidnap and many others in the country to bring the perpetrators and sponsors to book.
He said that the reason behind the motion is to stop this ugly trend of kidnapping in the Nigeria as it is portraying the country in bad light before comity of nations.
He enjoined parents to be security conscious and urged security agencies to intensify effort to make the country safe for the citizens particularly children who are the leaders of tomorrow.
The former Kano State governor used the opportunity to thank Nigerians and call on them to continue to pray for the country adding that Nigeria will come out stronger from the security challenges facing the nation.
