Omole was quoted as saying, “ Where will ordinary
Nigerians pass that they will be safe?
“Our roads are death traps and since we cannot
afford plane tickets, we endure the hardship only
for us to be kidnapped again. This is evil and must
be stopped.
“The Inspector General of Police needs to track
down kidnappers in Ondo State and other adjoining
states.
“President Muhammadu Buhari should order
security agencies to ensure Dr Fabunmi’s release
within 24 hours.
“If ‘big men’ or their children are kidnapped, all the
newspapers will be awash with the report but when
the ‘poor man’ is kidnapped, he becomes another
victim.
“The Minister of Interior, Abdulrahman Dambazzau ,
should step up his act and check this insecurity.
“The Federal Government must not force Nigerians
to rise in self defence, if their security cannot be
guaranteed by the state ,” the Nation reports.
