Bandits went on a killing spree in Northern Nigeria

Nigeria’s First Lady, Oluremi Tinubu, has described kidnappers as cowards.

Remi Tinubu noted that anyone convicted of abduction deserves capital punishment.

She stated this while responding to the news of 200 women who were kidnapped in Borno State and over 280 pupils and teachers kidnapped in Kaduna State.

Remi Tinubu said, “Whoever is kidnapping young people is sick, cruel, and a coward.

“Enough is enough, and I call on the state governors that once we take hold of them, they deserve capital punishment.

“Why don’t they take people their size? Why are they torturing our children? What they are trying to do is kill our future.

“We all know parents; when we are old, we rely on our children.

“Why would you go and take them from schools? Right now, I think enough is enough. As a former lawmaker, I believe that any one of them captured deserves capital punishment.

“They (kidnappers) are animals; they are evil, and we should take them out of our midst.

“The state governors and the lawmakers should do something.”

Chronicle NG reports that over 100 pupils and teachers of Government Secondary School and LEA Primary School in Kuriga, Kaduna State, were abducted by bandits on Thursday, triggering national outrage.

The kidnappers reportedly invaded the Kuriga area of the Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State on Thursday, shooting at their victims before taking away at least 280 of the pupils and teachers from both schools.
