The Prayer Force Network (PFN) has called for the immidiate release of the District Head of Panyam, Da Aminu Derwam, and other abductees in Mangu local government area of Plateau State.
PFN regretted that kidnapping now make headlines on national dailies under the leadership of an army General, Muhammadu Buhari.
“it is the norm,” PFN said of the kidnapping taking place in the country which often on a daily basis.
A statement issued by Amb John Pofi, PFN said the recent of the kidnapping in Plateau state is the unabated abduction of the District Head of Panyam in Mangu local government area where the abductors came, operated for an hour without any form of resistance from security forces and at the end, broke into his residence and took him away and as usual, the police arrived the scene after the terrorist have gone far.
“This is Nigeria under a General who like I always say has himself been captured by terrorists.
“The same day this sad incident occurred, the traditional ruler of Zira in Bauchi state was also kidnapped by “yet to be identified” “gun men ” the tale is fast becoming a child’s play.
“Too fast to be real, yet, too real to deny, what a country? The son of Da Aminu Derwam the monarch of Panyam said negotiations have commenced with the bandits, but we need people to be arrested before or after the release of the monarch.
“Why do I have sim registrations? Why the National Identification Number? Yet, security forces cannot trace these hoodlums who have made kidnapping a daily business?
“The current administration under the unable leadership of Muhammadu Buhari has failed to protect nor provide jobs for the teeming youths and they have unjustifiably engaged in the business of abduction. This is sad and unacceptable.
“I also learnt that the abductors of the train attack have sent one person out to go and bring ransom to them for the release of the other abducted victims and the bandits we have as leaders will continue to deceive us that there is security in Nigeria, a state that already failed. This is a big shame of a nation, ” the group said.
Prayer Force Network, said it feel the pains of the Panyam people, Mangu local government area and Plateau state in general and therefore call for immediate action for his release as well as those who are in captivity.
“May God deliver us from the hands of wicked leaders who can no longer secure our today nor our future.OH Lord hear our prayers and heal our land in Jesus mighty name! Amen, ” Pofi added.
