Kidnappers of Kano 9 to die by hanging

Kano State Governor, Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje has announced  that kidnapping of any sort within the territories of the state would  attract death penalty.

Ganduje  spoke on Thursday at the Government House during the inauguration of the 16 member of Commission of Inquiry into the abduction of nine children from the state which is chaired by Justice Wada Rano.

“I have already directed the state Ministry of Justice to amend the relevant provisions of the Penal Code (Laws of Kano State) that provides for the punishment of an offender of kidnapping from forms of imprisonments to death penalty” he announced.   

“This would certainty discourage the perpetrators and discourage others from doing this heinous crime in Kano State” he added.

 Ganduje, who insisted that the the culprits do not  represent Christianity or Islamic religion, said that it was entirely a criminal action, which should addressed as such.

He expressed bitterness that the children were over the years deprived of their culture, their religion and their families, adding that, “They have been transformed into something else. What is constant in them is their bodies, but not their souls”
The Governor told  the children that they were now home and ” enjoy the warmth of your parents, you will do the religion of Islam which is the religion of your parents , you will grow in our culture and in our tradition, in our sociology and you will grow to become members of Kano State” he stated.
