Kaduna former senator, Shehu Sani on Sunday lamented on how bandits have become “more daring and audacious in the outskirts of our city.”
He spoke in reaction to the foiled kidnap attempt at the Kaduna Aiport staff quarters on Sunday morning.
Gunmen had on Sunday morning made another attempt to kidnap another set of aviation workers residing in the staff quarters of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) at the Kaduna airport.
The development comes about two weeks after some bandits had successfully gained access to the same airport and kidnapped 11 workers made up of a staff of the Nigerian Airspace Management Agency (NAMA) and his entire family and that of the Nigerian Meteorological Agency (NiMET) and his family.
Sani, on his verified Twitter handle, urged the authorities to beef up security around the Airport for the protection of the facility, its staff and their families.
He tweeted: “It’s a relief to hear that the Army foiled a fresh kidnap attempt by bandits at the Aviation Quarters in Kaduna today.
“Vigilance is needed to protect the Airport, its staff and their families.
“The bandits have become more daring and audacious in the outskirts of our city.”
