The Concerned Nigerian Group (CNG), urged President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to utilize the skills and expertise of the embattled and suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari, to tackle the escalating insecurity issues plaguing the country.
In a statement signed by its National Coordinator, Segun Rotimi, Deputy National Coordinator, Musa Shehu, and National Secretary, Nnamdi Sylvester, the CNG expressed deep concern over the recent attacks on a family in Bwari Area Council of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
Meanwhile, the group stressed the severity of the security situation in the country, urging President Tinubu to take immediate action. They warned that if swift action is not taken, his administration would go down as one of the worst in Nigeria’s history.
CNG condemned the increase in kidnappings happening right under the government’s nose, particularly in satellite towns in the FCT. They highlighted the Abuja/Kaduna expressway and the Birnin Gwari expressway to Zamfara as areas where kidnappers have taken control.
They also mentioned other states like Plateau, Zamfara, and Borno, where kidnappers are running rampant, the CNG reminded President Tinubu of the successful efforts led by Abba Kyari, during which he and his colleagues effectively battled criminals.
