Nabeeha: Peter Obi Pays Condolence Visit To Al-Kadriyar Family

The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, has paid a condolence visit to the Al-Kadriyar family, whose six daughters were abducted on January 2, News About Nigeria reports.

During the visit to the family on Tuesday, Obi shared his sympathies and expressed his deep concern over the tragic incident.

The former Anambra governor expressed deep concerns about the escalating rate of kidnappings in the country, urging the government to take strict measures to address the prevailing insecurity.

He said that there is a need for collective efforts to combat criminality and urged both the government and citizens to work collaboratively to put an end to the prevalent issue of kidnappings.

Obi stated, “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 every day. We can’t continue this way.”

The tragic incident occurred on January 2 when bandits abducted 19 people from the Sagwari Estate Layout in the Dutsen-Alhaji area of the Bwari Area Council in the Federal Capital Territory.

Among the victims were six girls from the Al-Kadriyar family, who were later released on January 20.

Unfortunately, four hostages, including Nabeeha Al-Kadriyar and 13-year-old Folashade Ariyo, lost their lives during the ordeal.

In a related development, the Nigerian Police Force announced on Sunday that they had arrested a suspected kidnapper, Bello Mohammed, 28, believed to be involved in the abduction and murder of Nabeeha.
