Rivers state governor, Nyesom Wike, says it is impossible to stop kidnapping in Nigeria
In a chat with Rotary International District 9141, who paid him a courtesy visit in his office in Port Harcourt, the state capital, Nyesom Wike, the Rivers State governor, says it is impossible to stop kidnapping in Nigeria as it has now become a business.
In his words, "It is now impossible to stop kidnapping in Nigeria. It (kidnapping) is now a business. It has been commercialised. It is now a major business. Everyone must partner with the government to ensure that we reduce it to the barest minimum. But it cannot be totally eradicated.
Look at what is happening across the country. Kidnapping has taken over all states. When it started here, it was politicised. But today, it is negatively affecting all states of the federation. A few days ago, a Court of Appeal judge was kidnapped in Benin. Before that, a Federal High Court judge was kidnapped. All of us must work together to stop this scourge,"
