What Could Have Pushed Haruna, A Disabled Man Into Kidnapping?

According to a report by Sahara Reporters, the operatives of the Katsina State Police Command have arrested a kidnapper-turned crippled, Buhari Haruna, while attempting to pick up a ransom of 2 million Naira for a kidnap operation. This surprises many Nigerians that can't phantom the rationale behind the ability of a disabled man to go into kidnapping.

There is an ability in a disability. As people say disability is a matter of perception, once you can do something right, you are needed by someone. But the case of the 22-year-old Haruna was different, he used his disability in the negative, he Kidnapped people for money. Although he has been apprehended by the Police, as a native of the Kankia Local Government Area in the state, he attempted to kidnap one Hamisu Salisu of the same Kankia community.

It is sad how our society has decayed to this level, how will a disabled man even think of kidnapping people, except he has lost hope in living a decent life? Kidnapping has become the order of the day among criminal elements in Nigeria. A king of enterprise utilized by criminals to make quick cash in the name of ransom. It is sad to read about this type of story. Since the time Evans the kidnapper was arrested, the business of kidnapping has been one of the major crimes in Nigeria.

The North needs to look for solutions to the high rate of insecurity bedeviling the area. They need to re-orientate the youth and create employment opportunities for them. Education should be the best tool for the orientation program. The Almajiri system of education should be reprogrammed to include western education. Peoples oriented programs should be instituted in all institutions in the North that will make compulsory for all persons to learn one or more skill.
