Nabeeha's killing: Peter Obi pays condolence visit to Al-Kadriyar family

Peter Obi, the Labour Party presidential candidate, has paid a condolence visit to the Al-Kadriyar family, whose six daughters were abducted on January 2, with one of them, Nabeeha, eventually killed.

The former Anambra State governor during the visit to the family on Tuesday, expressed worries over the rate of kidnappings in the country and urged the government to curb insecurity.

“I came to have the opportunity of condoling the family and then see the young ones that are still in the hospital,” he said.

“It is for all of us to sacrifice everything possible to see that criminality is contained.

“Can you imagine how it feels for a father to lose a young daughter. Imagine Folashade’s family as well. Just imagine the trauma. Imagine what they are going through.

“The government and the people must work hard to stop this. It is a very sad situation, I don’t even know how to start commenting, because this is happening everyday. We can’t continue this way.”

Recall that bandits abducted about 20 people from the Sagwari Estate Layout in the Dutsen-Alhaji area in the Bwari Area Council of the Federal Capital Territory earlier in January.

They included six girls who were abducted from their home alongside their father, Alhaji Mansoor Al-Kadriyar.

It was gathered that the gunmen later released their father, asking him to go get the ransom for the release of his daughters.

The kidnappers killed four of the hostages, including Nabeeha Al-Kadriyar, a 400-level student of Biological Science, Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, and 13-year-old Folashade Ariyo.

The remaining five sisters regained their freedom on Saturday, January 20.

The Nigerian Police Force, on Sunday, disclosed that they arrested a suspected kidnapper, Bello Mohammed, 28, believed to be involved in the abduction and murder of Nabeeha.
