Friendship between Buhari government and abductors is enabling kidnapping - Ezekwesili
Erstwhile minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili has blamed the ‘strange incestuous relationship’ between the Buhari-led government and abductors as the reason for the endless kidnapping witnessed in the country.
The ex-minister was speaking at the backdrop of the recent visit and negotiations between Kaduna based Islamic cleric, Sheik Ahmed Gumi and kidnappers of 27 Kagara students in Niger state.
According to Ezekwesili, she claimed the friendship between the government and abductors has enabled the industry of abduction to flourish in Nigeria on basic market principles of demand and supply.
She wrote on Twitter: “Still no positive development on the Kagara students abduction, @NigeriaGov? Truly disastrous that Education is now under the daily threat of barbarism.
“May God keep them safe until President Buhari reaches out to their abductors as he did for #KankaraBoys in Katsina.
“There’s now an industry of abduction flourishing on basic market principles of demand and supply. It is enabled by a strange incestuous relationship between the government and the abductors.
“Folks in Federal and State Governments are throwing this friendship in faces of Citizens. SHAME.”
