Abduction: We Need To Know The Truth, Nigerian Governor Speaks




Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has said insecurity in the country is rising because Nigerians politicise the issue of security.

Wike made the statement during the visit of the Minister of State for Agriculture, and Rural Development, Mustapha Baba Shehuri to his office on Monday, March 15.

He raised concerns over the spate of abductions and release of schoolchildren by alleged kidnappers in the northern part of Nigeria.

Wike said: “I saw breaking news, another banditry in Kaduna and taking away students and teachers. The thing is becoming funny. Yesterday, you take 300, two days after, they release them. The next morning, you take another one, the next 24 hours, they’re released.

“So, people know where they are. You take two hundred and something people in a 20 kilometres distance and nobody will know? And in the next 24 hours they’ve been released. What’s really happening? The governor, who demanded the truth about what is actually going on, said the spate of school kidnappings in the north is becoming funny.

Wike also accused the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) of denying Rivers state access to its agricultural loans. He said the Rivers State request for Agricultural loans has not been granted for over a year.
