The governor of Kwara State, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq has called on the police to intensify efforts to free the six Kwarans abducted last weekend along Abuja-Kaduna expressway.
The abductees were said to be on their way to Kaduna.
However, in a statement by the governor’s spokesman, Rafiu Ajakaye, Tuesday, the governor urged the police to expedite actions that would lead to prompt rescue of the abductees.
“We urge the police and other security agencies to do everything possible to free these citizens as soon as possible. We call on the criminals behind the dastardly act to immediately and unconditionally release our people in their custody,” he said.
The governor also urged relatives of the abductees to remain calm, saying that the government was in constant touch with the security agencies over the development.
“Finally, we call on anyone with useful hints about this development to pass such information to the police or nearest government offices,” the statement added.
