The issue of banditry, kidnapping and terrorism seem to have a serious resurgence across various states within the country; it is worrisome due to the serious threat to one’s safety in the contemporary Nigeria of nowadays, where even law enforcement agencies are not spared out of it with the unlawful detention, killing and intimidation of innocent citizens by FSARS. One doesn’t know where to be safe again; we pray for the various families and for the unconditional release of those being held hostage by the kidnappers.
