De Club 10 Nigeria, an elite group from Kogi Central Senatorial District, has asked the Kogi state government to urgently address the resurgence of kidnapping in the area.
In a statement its President, Alhaji Saidu Yusuf, on Wednesday, De Club 10 Nigeria expressed worry that the return of kidnapping in the senatorial district and other parts of the state is threatening the Ajaokuta Steel Company and other associated business outfits.
Yusuf said that many industrialists who are preparing to move into the state to take advantage of the steel project and iron ore in Itakpe may be scared.
The Club, which commended Governor Yahaya Bello for his proactive efforts in arresting the first wave of kidnapping and other crimes, appealed to him to re-enact the same efforts.
It recalled the kidnapping of a prominent pharmacist, Kwadeco a couple of days ago, saying that immediate action should be taken to save the man and stop the criminals from having their ways.
The Club expressed sympathy to the family, friends and business associate of Kwadeco and prayed that he soon return safely.
