Gov. Sani Bello vows to rescue abducted construction workers


Gov. Sani Bello: We are committed to protecting lives and property of citizens

Niger state Governor Abubakar Sani Bello,  has assured that his administration will do everything within its power to ensure that Abubakar Ibrahim Jibrin, a staff of the Niger state Ministry of Works,  and three staff of a construction company recently abducted by unidentified gunmen from a site at Erena community in Shiroro LGA are rescued unhurt.

In a statement signed by the Chief Press Secretary (CPS) to the governor Mary Noel-Berje, and obtained by Summit News, Gov. Sanni Bello, said his government has  provided all the needed logistics support to ensure the victims regain their freedom,  and the criminals  made to face the wrath of the law.

Gov. Sani Bello, who maintained that no responsible government will fold its hands and watch some criminal elements hold its people hostage, noted that it’s time to take the fight to their hideouts and root them out of the communities, saying enough is enough.

HE said government is on top of the situation and the abducted persons would be rescued and reunited with their families within the shortest possible time.

The state Chief Executive noted that the abduction of the construction workers from site at a time when the government is aggressively embarking on the construction of some rural roads across the state to enhance economic activities of the people is a deliberate attempt to sabotage government efforts in this regard, vowing that this will not be tolerated.
