Kaduna State Governor Nasir El-Rufa’i has promised to end incessant cases of kidnapping to guarantee the safety of lives and property of the citizens in the state.
El-Rufa’i made the promise on Saturday during a town hall meeting in Kachia, Kachia Local Government Area of the state.
“… the ugly scenario would soon be a thing of the past,” the governor said.
According to him, the state has recorded significant stride in addressing indices of insecurity, including killings of innocent persons and cattle rustling.
However, he expressed regrets that perpetrators of such acts had resorted to kidnapping of persons. He said that the police recently arrested a kingpin of kidnappers in the state and arms were recovered from the suspects.
“We have put in place as part of our statutory function, security measure to put an end to the menace once and for all,” El-Rufai said.
