Nicholas Afel, the Acting District Head of Kamuru-Ikulu in Zango-Kataf Local Government Area of Kaduna State, has decried the rising rate of kidnapping in the area.
The District Head spoke on Thursday on the sidelines of a two-day free medical outreach organised by the Defence Headquarters in the community.
Afel, who said the increasing rate of kidnapping has become worrisome, decried the lack of a police station in the area.
According to him, the few military personnel posted to the community due to the recent security challenges that greeted it were grossly inadequate.
He said: “Kidnapping has become a serious menace in this area.
“Our people are being kidnapped and killed on daily basis.
“We are suffering and losing our people because of the high level of insecurity.
“This is a very serious problem for us.
“As I speak, we don’t have a police station here and the few military men posted here are inadequate.
“So, we call on the Federal and State Governments to come to our aid.”
