Kwara State Governor, Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, paid a visit on Wednesday to the family of the Nabeeha Alkadiriyahs in Abuja. The family had recently experienced the kidnapping of their children, who were subsequently released by the abductors following the payment of a ransom.
The Governor, as revealed in a personal statement, spent time interacting with the girls who had regained their freedom from the hands of the criminals. Expressing his impressions, Abdulrazaq stated, “I am impressed to see them in high spirits and responding well to their therapies, clearly unbowed to whatever that had happened, and very positive about the future which I’m certain will be better and brighter for them.”
Acknowledging the parents’ resilience, he commended their calm and courageous efforts to confront the situation with patriotism and hope in the Almighty, which ultimately yielded positive results. Abdulrazaq conveyed heartfelt sympathy and condolences for the tragic loss of Nabeeha and her uncle during the unfortunate incident.
“God will comfort the family now and always. I trust that the security agencies will hunt down whomever was involved in that incident and similar others; they will not go unpunished. We are too strong as a people to bow to the few cowards who target innocent citizens in their nefarious activities,” added the governor.
The children were abducted in Abuja recently and released after a significant ransom was paid, resulting in the unfortunate loss of two lives in the process.
