The Western Zone Ijaw Youths Council (WZIYC) has called for the release of the vice president of Ogulagha Students Union.
The group has also tasked the Delta state Commissioner of Police, Ali Mohammed to secure the unconditional release of Ms Nimughan Happiness from her kidnappers’ den.
In a statement signed by Doubra Okotete and Lugard Izoukumor, Chairman and Information Officer respectively of the Zone, the youth group lamented over the increaasing insecurity in our Nigerian roads and communities.
The duo have therefore called on security agencies, particularly the Commissioner of Police to rise up to the challenge posed by bandits, hoodlums and kidnappers in the state.
According to a source, Ms. Nimughan was kidnapped about 5pm on Thursday, along the popular Agbor-Benin road alongside others on while returning from a cousin’s traditional marriage in Benin.
As stated by the group, “The ineffectiveness by few security agencies in Delta State as attracting “imminent danger” by their lack of dedication to ensuring citizens of Delta State are given adequate police protections.
“We also condemn in strong terms, those that are in this despicable and mischievously dangerous act; in regards, to the worsening insecurity in Delta State to desist forthwith.
“It urges CP Ali Mohammed and other security agencies to rise up and ensure the unconditional release of Ms. Nimughan Happiness, so that she can be reunited back with her family members.
“Thus, it is instructive to inform security agencies that, as security officials they are obliged at all times to ensure citizens are given full police protections, not to be flagrantly abused and create public panic or disarray.
“We sympathize and implore the family members of Ms. Nimughan to be strong. IYC Western Zone will do everything humanly possible to ensure Ms. Nimughan regains her freedom where she can once again walk peacefully and pursue her academic obligations”, the statement ended.
