Muslim students call for tougher action on kidnappers

28 October 2016, 06:27

Lagos - The Muslim Students' Society of Nigeria, Lagos State Area Unit (MSSN Lagos), has urged the federal government to mete out severe punishment for kidnapper to deter the prevalence of abductions.

Amir (President) of the MSSN in Lagos, Saheed Ashafa, made the request during the condemnation of the abduction of Mallam Muhammed Awwal Maidoki and his family members.

Maidoki is a former national president of MSSN and currently the Chairman of the Sokoto State Zakah Commission.

He has been released together with his wife Ummu-khulsum; younger sister, Hafsatu Maidoki: and his younger brother's wife, Aisha.

Ashafa called on security agencies to ensure the arrest of perpetrators behind the abduction of Maidoki and his family members.

He recommended stiffer punishment for kidnappers.

“It is important for officers of the Nigeria Police Force and other security agencies to see the arrest of the kidnappers of Maidoki as germane,” said Ashafa.

He said growing kidnapping rate calls for review of punishments for kidnappers.

“Punishing caught culprits severely could discourage others from engaging in the criminal act.”
