A former lawmaker who represented Kaduna Central senatorial district at the Senate during the 8th National Assembly, Shehu Sani, has urged Nigerians to intensify their prayers for the release of the nine students of the Ahmadu Bello University (ABU) who were kidnapped along Kaduna-Abuja road on Sunday, November 15.
Legit.ng reports that the abducted students were from the Department of French in the faculty of Arts of the institution.
In a tweet on his Twitter page @ShehuSani on Monday, November 16, the former senator said the students who are still with their abductors, were reportedly heading to Badagry in Lagos for an exchange programme.
"Nine students from the Department of French, faculty of Arts Ahmadu Bello University who were kidnapped along Kaduna Abuja road yesterday are still with their abductors. They were reportedly heading to Badagry, Lagos for an exchange program. Let's pray for them."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that Sani made a very shocking revelation on the activities of bandits in the northern states, especially in Zamfara.
It was reported that Sani on his Twitter page on Wednesday, November 11, claimed that the criminals now collect tax from poor farmers in order to allow them to cultivate crops on farmlands.
The former senator, therefore, called on security authorities and governors in the region to look into the issue.
In a related report, Sani knocked the governors and leaders from the northern region for prioritising the issue of social media over the issue that affects the lives and livelihoods of their people.
He described as a misplaced priority the northern governors' controversial resolution that social media should be censored and regulated.
Sani said the northern leaders wanted docile people they can easily compromise without being challenged.
