Kano kidnappers resort to use of tricycles

Kidnappers in Kano city now use commercial tricycles to abduct unsuspecting passengers, investigation by Northern City News has revealed.

A victim who narrowly escaped abduction, Musa Danbaba,  said he boarded a tricycle on France Road, saying that no sooner had the vehicle taken off than he lost his memory.

He said he observed the operator conveying him towards Igbo Road, adding that he raised the alarm which the rider ignored.

“As the tricycle operator was speeding away to an unknown destination, I summoned courage and jumped out and collapsed, but I subsequently regained consciousness and headed to my destination,” Danbaba stated.

Another passenger claimed she had to alight from a tricycle when she noticed the unusual demeanor of the operator.

The Kano State  Chairman of Tricycle Operators Association, Sani Kwari, confirmed the fresh cases of kidnapping involving tricycle operators in the state.

He however said  that his association had notified the police about the development.

Kwara disowned the perpetrators, saying they were not members of his association.

He stated that all his union members were registered with identification numbers issued by the Kano Road Transport Agency.

He however warned passengers against boarding tricycles operating outside designed parks.

He said, “The dubious unregistered tricycle operators who are not our members carry out their illicit duties when our genuine members must have closed for the day mostly at unholy hours of the night.”

The Niger Delta As A Microcosm Of Nigeria | Eugene Abels | TEDxPortHarcourt

Despite being abundant in human and natural resources, violence and decline in development prevail in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria. In this talk, Eugene Abels invites us to stop pointing fingers at governments, unite and reflect on our history and also, to change our thought patterns, attitudes and habits in order to create the community/nation we want.

A deliberate Change Agent and technocrat committed to international best practices who has in three decades traversed the Real, Banking and Public Sectors of the Nigerian Economy, Eugene Irefa Abels was born, bred and schooled in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria. He hails from two oil producing Communities, Nembe and Finima and believes that they are a microcosm of the Niger Delta Region.

An exponent of the need to exorcise our Colonial past from the souls of our public servants and elected officials, he believes the art of governance has been reduced to the single person pronoun ‘I’ whereas ‘we the people’ holds no relevance.
