The Niger State Government on Saturday, 6th October, has been said to have allegedly demolished a twin flat building, which many believe to be owned by a suspected kidnapper in the State.
The building which was located at the state capital, Minna; specifically Yikangbe, was rumored to have been occupied by the kidnapper and his family members.
Also, the Niger State Government in a statement released on Saturday by the Chief Press Secretary of the state governor, Mary Noel Berje, confirmed the actions meted out on the Kidnapper’s property.
In Berje’s words: “One of the flats was said to have been occupied by the suspect and his family members while the other flat was yet to be completed.”
The Niger State Governor, Abubakar Sani Bello had frowned at the incessant killings in the state which he described as senseless, a few days ago.
The Niger Governor in his statement while inaugurating an eight-man judicial commission of inquiry into the recent killings at Addogon Malam, Mazakuka, Kulho, and other communities in the Mashegu Local Government Area of the state.
According to Governor Bello, it was the inability of the government to adequately punish those flagrantly taking laws into their hands, that resulted in the killings and brutalities in some of the communities.
Governor Bello emphasized the gruesomeness of the killings, which he pointed out had lingered for too long because the government had not found appropriate punitive sanctions for the culprits.
“We must be able to do the right thing. Those taking laws into their hands must be seen to face justice to prevent others from executing similar senseless acts and ensure that it does not occur again in future,” he posited.
Governor Bello tasked the commission which had been commissioned to exercise justice and fairness by thorough investigation and inquiry, stating that those found guilty must face punitive measures provisioned by the law.Click here to give us five stars rating!
