From Mustapha Adamu, Kano
The Igbo Community Association in Kano has condemned in strong terms the abduction of nine children from the state and trafficked to South East.
Recall that last Friday, Kano Police Command paraded some suspects with nine children they allegedly trafficked to Onitsha, Anambra State.
This was contained in a statement jointly signed by President General Igbo Community Association in Kano Chief Ebenezer Chima and Sarki Ndigbo Kano, Igwe Boniface Ibekwe yesterday.
The statement commended the security agents with their proactive investigation and synergy that led to the recovery of the victims.
‘’We are recommending stiff penalty for the culprits to serve as a deterrent to others who may be nursing ambition for such nefarious act,’’ said the statement.
The statement appreciated the state Governor, Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje and the Emir of Kano Malam Muhammad Sunusi and the good people of Kano for their understanding of the issue.
It also called on Igbos in Kano to be law-abiding and go about their legitimate businesses.
