and former vice president of Nigeria, has reacted to the death of Nabeeha
Al-Kadriyar, who was killed by her abductors in Abuja.


Atiku spoke through a statement on his official X handle on


He said the murder of Nabeeha showed that kidnappers and
bandits were operating unhindered in Nigeria.


He called for the rejig of the country’s security
architecture to stop the free rein of criminal elements and guarantee the
safety of lives and property.


“I am saddened by reports of the brutal murder of Nabeeha
Al-Kadriyar, who was abducted with her siblings and has been in the custody of
their abductors for almost two weeks.


“This is yet another reminder that kidnappers and bandits
are operating unhindered in our country.


“The security architecture needs to be rejigged to the
extent that it stems from the free rein of criminal elements and guarantees the
safety of lives and property.


“The security agencies should step up action to rescue the
rest who are still in the custody of the kidnappers”, he wrote.


Recall that barely two weeks ago, bandits kidnapped Alhaji
Mansoor Al-Kadriyar and his six children in the Bwari Area Council of the
Federal Capital Territory.


The deceased, Nabeeha, was among the six children of Alhaji
Mansoor Al-Kadriyar.


She was laid to rest according to Islamic rites on Saturday.


Nabeeha was a 400-level biological science student at Ahmadu
Bello University (ABU), Zaria.


Others abducted include: Najeebah (500 level, Quantity Surveying),
Nadheerah (300 level, Zoology)


DAILY POST gathered that the kidnappers had earlier
contacted the family, demanding N60 million ransom, but now increased to N100
million after Nabeeha’s murder.


The incident caused a stir on social media as Nigerians
sought justice for Nabeeha and the release of her siblings.


The spokesperson of the Nigeria Police Force, Olumuyiwa
Adejobi, said, “we have been working on it, but we need some info. We will try
our best possible to emplace all necessary measures to rescue them unhurt.”


“But we need to get some information please”, he wrote on X
while responding to a post by Ahmed Bashir, former media aide to ex-President
Muhammadu Buhari.
