The Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) yesterday said it is deeply saddened by the death of National Vice Chairman of ACN, Dr. Chuddy Nwike, in the hands of those who kidnapped him last month.
In a statement by Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the party said the killing of Nwike by his abductors, after a ransom had been paid to secure his release is the height of cruelty and represents a debasement of our collective humanity.
While appealing to the federal government to take a decisive action to end the worsening insecurity in the country, prayed that God will comfort the family of the departed and strengthen them to bear what he described as unquantifiable loss.
”Dr. Nwike is the latest victim of this mindless act of kidnapping for ransom, which is fast deteriorating with the killing of innocent victims even after their families would have paid a huge ransom to secure their release.
”This senseless act has not spared anyone, high or low, male or female, rich or poor. The fact that it has continued unabated is a sad commentary on the state of security in our nation. It is high time the authorities acted to stamp out this heinous crime,” ACN said.
