In the wake of recent kidnappings in Nigeria, First Lady Oluremi Tinubu has strongly denounced the perpetrators, labeling them as “cowards” and advocating for stringent punishment, including the death penalty.

Expressing her dismay over the abduction of over 200 women in Borno State and more than 280 pupils and teachers in Kaduna State, Tinubu emphasized the need for decisive action against those responsible. She asserted, “Whoever is kidnapping young people is sick, cruel, and a coward.” She further demanded that once apprehended, kidnappers should face capital punishment.

Tinubu questioned the morality of targeting innocent children and educators, stressing that such actions jeopardize the nation’s future. She appealed to state governors and lawmakers to take immediate and effective measures to combat the scourge of kidnapping.

The recent wave of abductions includes the reported kidnapping of around 200 women by Boko Haram terrorists in Borno State. These women, who were internally displaced persons, were taken while searching for firewood in the bush. Additionally, bandits abducted over 280 pupils and teachers from Government Secondary School and LEA Primary School in Kuriga, Kaduna State, sparking national outrage.

The brazenness of these attacks has ignited widespread condemnation, with calls for swift and decisive action against the perpetrators. As the nation grapples with the recurring threat of kidnappings, voices like Tinubu underscore the urgent need for concerted efforts to safeguard communities and protect vulnerable individuals from harm.
