Nigeria’s First Lady: Terrorists, Kidnappers Are Cowards Who Deserve Execution

Nigeria’s first lady, Oluremi Tinubu has joined the chorus of voices condemning the spate of kidnappings in the country, calling for the death of any apprehended terrorist.

A wave of kidnapping swept through Nigeria last week with the abduction of  287  school children by Fulani radical Islamist terrorists in Kuriga village, Chikun county of Kaduna State on Thursday, March 7.

The next day, Mrs Tinubu called for the execution of the terrorists, describing them as “cowards”.

“Right now, I think enough is enough. As a former lawmaker, I believe that any one of them captured deserves capital punishment,” said the First Lady.

Hours after Mrs Tinubu’s call, the jihadists struck in Gidan Bakuso village in Gada county of Sokoto State, abducting at least 15 school children

The village was attacked at 1:00 a.m. local time on Saturday, but authorities have still not given exact figures of kidnapped victims as they said they were still working out how many children had been abducted.

President Bola Tinubu has not responded to the First Lady’s demand, but only said he is “confident that the victims will be rescued.”
