Shehu Sani, a former Kaduna Central Senator, has described kidnapping as a thriving business.

Sani said kidnapping is now a lucrative business with students as its “stocks and goldmine.”

In a tweet, the former lawmaker warned against underestimating the issue of kidnapping in the country.

According to Sani: “When they said that the Jangebe Kidnappings would be the last, it’s clear that they really underestimated the enormity and gravity of the problem.

“Kidnapping is now a thriving lucrative business and students are now their stocks and Goldmine.”

His remark is coming at a time some unknown gunmen had abducted students of the Federal College of Forestry Mechanisation in Mando, Kaduna State.

Confirming the incident to journalists, the state’s Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Mohammed Jalige had said the exact number of students abducted is currently uncertain

Meanwhile, bandits had abducted students of Government Girls Science Secondary School, GGSS, in Jangebe, Talata Mafara Local Government Area of Zamfara State.

The bandits, however, released the girls following the assistance of some repentant bandits and security agents.
