House of Representatives member, Nasiru Ali Ahmad, representing Nassarawa Local Government Federal Constituency in Kano state, has petitioned the National Assembly over incessant kidnapping and killing of minors around his constituency.
Mr Ahmed disclosed this when he paid a condolence visit to the parents of Hanifah Abubakar, a five-year old pupil who was kidnapped and subsequently killed by her teacher, Abdulmalik Tanko in the state.
The lawmaker said he had already submitted a petition that would compel the government to take drastic measures against the nefarious acts.
He said, “I have already petitioned the National Assembly and followed it with another move of converging security summit that would see all the Chiefs Imams, Pastors, District and Village Heads coming together to tackle the disturbing scenario”.
Mr Ahmad, said that the amount of children that are today missing from his Federal Constituency is so alarming that calls for immediate action to curtail it.
“We cannot fall down our hands and allow children to be stolen and even killed by some disgruntled elements who are hellbent in creating chaos and uncertainty amongst us, we must take all the necessary measures to stop”.
He added that the security summit would have the input of the state government, security agencies and all those that matter from the area to ensure that the five year old Hanifa Abubakar disturbing saga does not repeat itself.
“Let me assure you that this matter of Hanifa Abubakar would never be swept under the carpet. We will follow it to its logical conclusion and ensure justice to Hanifah”.
“That is why I have written a personal petition to the National Assembly to have the full support of my colleagues in fighting this troublesome scenario disturbing my Federal Constituency”.
He explained that he will further suspend most of his activities for now to ensure that the security summit he is conveying achieved the desired results.
