Former Minister reveals forces behind recent kidnappings in Nigeria

Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has alleged that the recent attacks and abductions in Nigeria are being coordinated by forces both within and outside the country.

He claimed the abductions were an attempt to destabilise Nigeria and undermine the government, adding that the nation needs to rise to the occasion and expose the kidnappers as quickly as possible.

Fani-Kayode’s statement followed the news of the kidnapping of dozens of women by Islamist terrorists a few days ago in Borno State and recently in Kuriga, Kaduna State where no less than 280 school girls were abducted from their school.

In a post on his X handle on Friday, the former Minister said he wholeheartedly condemned those shameful and cowardly abductions, calling for the summary execution and extrajudicial elimination of all terrorists and kidnappers in the country.


He said: “Events in Gamboru Ngala in Borno State, Northern Nigeria where dozens of women were abducted by Islamist terrorists a few days ago and in Kuriga, Kaduna state where no less than 280 school girls were abducted from their school again by Islamist terrorists in the early hours of this morning are deeply troubling.

“My heart goes out to the women and young girls that were kidnapped, to their husbands, parents and relatives, to Governor Uba Sani (@ubasanius) of Kaduna, to Governor Babagana Zulum
(@ProfZulum) of Borno and to the leaders, traditional rulers and people of both states.

“I wholeheartedly condemn these shameful and cowardly abductions and I call for the summary execution and extra judicial elimination of all terrorists and kidnappers.

“This is a WAR and we must fight it courageously, vigorously and mercilessly and take NO prisoners!

“Every single one of these cruel, callous, bloodthirsty and evil terrorist beasts that target, murder and abduct our innocent and defenceless women and children and that terrorise our people must be utterly crushed, decimated and annihilated and, in a glorious hail of gunfire and bombs, despatched back to hell where they belong.

“I have no doubt that these attacks and abductions are being co-ordinated by forces both within and outside Nigeria in an attempt to destabilise our country and undermine our Government and we need to rise to the occasion, expose them as quickly and expeditiously as possible and hit them with everything that we have got.

“It is my prayer that the abducted women and children are rescued at the soonest and I have no doubt that both Governor Sani and Governor Zulum, in conjunction with President Bola Ahmed Tinubu (@officialABAT)
and our security agencies and Armed Forces will ensure that this is done.

“May God trouble those that seek to trouble our nation and may He put to shame and destroy those that seek to undermine her peace, security and stability.”
