The Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi II, on has reacted to the abduction of some children from Kano state to Anambra state.
Speaking at the public awareness campaign organized by League for Societal Protection Against Drug Abuse (LESPADA) in Kano, Sanusi said he had contacted the Obi of Onitsha on the matter and has been monitoring the progress since the news broke.
Warning that no tribe should be blamed for the children's abduction, Sanusi said it is important to figure out how the children were abducted.
"If you think it is not our negligence, go to Onitsha and attempt to kidnap their children and see if they are that careless. We must change our ways of thinking and stop blaming others for the social problems of our society," Sanusi said.
Stating that parents must be made to take responsibility for the children they bring into the world, the Emir said the importance of child upbringing cannot be overemphasised.
“I am not saying the kidnappers are not guilty of their offences before I would be misunderstood and misquoted, but what I am saying is that parents must be alive to their responsibility of children upbringing,” he said.
