PDP Demands Urgent Action From Abdulrahman's Govt To Rescue Al-kadriyar Family From Kidnappers

...Condemns Kwara Govts Negligence, Insensitivity To Plight Of Al-kadriyar Family 

The Kwara State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has expressed deep concern and grief over the horrifying situation surrounding the Al-Kadriyar family from Ajikobi ward, Ilorin West Local Government Area. We are distressed to learn that one of the daughters has been gruesomely murdered by kidnappers due to their inability to pay the exorbitant sum of sixty million naira (N60,000,000) as ransom demanded.

In a statement issued in Ilorin on Saturday and signed by the party's Publicity Secretary, Mr. Olusegun Olusola Adewara (Sholyments), the PDP urgently calls on Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq to expedite action and ensure the swift rescue of the remaining innocent children still held captive.

Our party also frowns upon the reported negligence of Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq and other government officials who, despite being contacted by the Al-Kadriyar family, allegedly turned a deaf ear until this tragic incident occurred. It is disheartening that, despite the gravity of the situation, there has been a conspicuous lack of solidarity or proactive steps from Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, the Senator representing Kwara Central, and the House of Representatives member representing Asa/Ilorin West Federal Constituency.

The Al-Kadriyar family came under a brutal attack at their residence in Abuja, resulting in the untimely death of Alhaji Mansoor's younger brother, Abdulfatai, who bravely attempted to rescue his brother. The kidnappers, in a heart-wrenching display, have demanded a hefty ransom and have already claimed the life of Nabeeha Al-Kadriya, a 200-level University student, with a chilling threat of more harm to the remaining children if the ransom is not paid.

We find it appalling and, indeed, morally reprehensible for Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq to shirk responsibility by leaving the burden of sourcing N60,000,000 on the already distressed father when he is sitting on billions of Taxpayer’s money. 

We make bold to say that the state government has the resources and duty to protect the lives of its citizens, including going the extra mile with the family to ensure the children in captivity regain their freedom unhurt. 

The PDP stands in solidarity with the Al-Kadriyar family during this difficult time and calls for swift and decisive action from the government to ensure the safe return of the remaining children.
