On Monday night, Bandits invaded St. Albert the Great Institute of Philosophy, a Catholic Seminary in Southern Kaduna and abducted students.
The seminary is situated at Fayit community, Kagoma Chiefdom in the Jama’a Local Government Area of Kaduna State.
According to a report reaching us from Sahara Reporters, the bandits have contacted the father of one of the three students who were abducted and demanded a ransom of N50m. This was made known by J.F Dabo, an assistant to the chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN).
The writer believes that if the demands of these bandits are met, it will encourage them to do more. This is a time for the military to deploy more soldiers to Kaduna State to track down these bandits.
Since the bandits contacted the father of their victim within 24 hours of the attack, it means that they've reached their hideout, and it isn't too far from where they abducted the students. The military should focus on neighbouring communities from where the students were abducted.
Judging from the high number of bandits operating in the Northern part of Nigeria, the writer would be correct by saying that these bandits see kidnapping as a profitable business and they use part of the money paid as ransom to purchase arms, this is why the government must not bow to their demands.
