Insecurity: 27 Nigerians kidnapped from four states in 48 Hours

At least 27 Nigerians have been kidnapped from four states in the past 48 hours, amidst the growing insecurity across the country.

Kidnapping for ransom has become one of the major security challenges facing Nigeria. Others include banditry, Boko Haram and ethnoreligious violence.

The insecurity across the country persists despite the efforts of security agencies.

Many Nigerians have also questioned the performance of the Muhammadu Buhari administration regarding security, especially as section 14(2)(b) of the Nigerian constitution provides that the security and welfare of the citizens shall be the primary purpose of government.

At least, 27 Nigerians have been abducted between Sunday and Tuesday morning, in Edo, Kaduna, Ekiti, Osun.

In the past week, the police and other security agencies have announced the arrest of scores of suspected kidnappers and the rescue of dozens of victims.

Despite the efforts of the security agencies, however, the proliferation of arms by non-state actors, as well as the insufficient number of trained and equipped security personnel has contributed to the insecurity across the country.

President Muhammadu Buhari was recently criticised by many Nigerians after he joked about the security situation in the country.
