Shehu Sani, a former federal lawmaker, has said security agencies must as a matter of urgency identify and deal with criminals always referred to as “unknown gunmen” in the media.
Sani, who represented Kaduna Central Senatorial District in the eighth National Assembly, said this in a series of Twitter posts on Sunday while reacting to the killing of Ahmed Gulak, a former presidential aide, and the abduction of Suleiman Danbaba Ismail, a member of the Nasarawa State House of Assembly.
Gulak, an ex-special adviser on Political Matters to former president Goodluck Jonathan, was shot to death on Sunday by unknown gunmen suspected to be armed bandits, according to the Imo State Police Command.
On the other hand, Ismail, who represents Nasarawa Central State Constituency in the state legislature, was kidnapped by unknown gunmen on Saturday evening while travelling to Jos, the Plateau State capital, for an official function.
Reacting, Sani said road travels in some parts of the country have become a “dangerous expedition” for Nigerians.
He called on the security agencies to take real action by identifying, apprehending and prosecuting criminals masquerading as unknown gunmen.
