- It is gathered that some residents have now subjected themselves to rigorous exercises in order to reduce their weight and to escape any form of suspicion by bandits and other criminals.
As Kidnappers continue to go on a kidnapping spree in Kaduna and its environs, some residents have discovered a new means of hiding their wealth, by wearing rags, and trekking instead of driving their flashy cars in order to avoid being identified by kidnappers.
Residents now pretend to be going through hard times so as to avoid being targeted by kidnappers. It is gathered that some residents have now subjected themselves to rigorous exercises in order to reduce their weight and to escape any form of suspicion by bandits and other criminals.
It is reported that information sharing has become a booming business as informants also get their shares after kidnappers collect ransom from their victims’ families.
A resident of Kakau, Mr. Jonathan Bulus whose neighbour was Kidnapped a day after he sold two cars wondered how kidnappers staying far in the bush, know who has money to pay for ransom and who doesn’t have.
According to Kakau “I am yet to come to terms with the reality. Kidnappers who stay inside the bush will locate someone’s house, come directly and start shooting to scare people away before they will kidnap their victims who may even be right in the midst of people. Someone must be responsible.”
According to him, no one is trusted in Kaduna anymore, as ” you don’t know what will happen next.”
Also, a resident in Sabo Tasha, Dr. Moses Olawale told newsmen that lack of job opportunities has turned many people into suspects.
” Those you think are able to assist, sometimes turn their back at you. No one claims to be rich again. Nobody is ready to assist any longer.
” The situation we find ourselves in Kaduna today requires everyone to use his/her wisdom. You don’t even need security because they are not helping matters. Security personnel cannot withstand kidnappers because of their powerful weapons,” he said.
