Massive reactions have trailed a list alleged by Shehu Sani to contain nine states in Nigeria that have recorded the highest cases of kidnappings.
The human rights in a Tweet on Tuesday, January 19, titled the list: Top nine kidnapping states.
According to the former lawmaker, states in the list include:
7. Cross Rivers
The ex-senator, however, did not disclose the records he relied on when compiling the list.
The list has generated huge reactions from users on Twitter. While some users claimed the list was incomplete, others disagreed outrightly with the activist for including some states.
A third group, on the other hand, questioned where Shehu Sani got his information from.
Read some reactions below:
"Sir, you should be probed DSS for stating the above States. Where do you get the hypothesis from?"
"Where is Solo, Kano and Benue. Cross Rivers and Ondo have no business on this your list."
"Are u currently living in Cross River to decide whether or not they should be there...."
"Distinguished Senator, Cross River is absolutely exempted from your list sir. There is an exceptional security architecture designed by Gov. Ben Ayade in CRS, known as Operation Akpakwu. Hence, member states should emulate same in eradicating kidnappings, etc"
