APC support groups urge Tinubu to adopt Russian technology to track kidnappers 

The confederation of All Progressives Congress (APC) support groups has urged President Bola Tinubu to adopt the latest sophisticated vehicular gadgets built by the Russian government to identify where pupils and their kidnappers are located.

Its director-general, Prof. Kailani Muhammad, gave the advice in Abuja on Friday at the breaking of fasting aimed at bringing Nigerians together, irrespective of their religions or tribes, to become more united.

On March 7, 2024, gunmen kidnapped 287 students and teachers from the LEA Primary School and the Government Secondary School, Kuriga, Kaduna State, as well as others in Sokoto State.

The schoolchildren were abducted by bandits, who took them into the forests.

Mr Muhammad emphasised the importance of the latest sophisticated electronic gadgets to be able to identify where these pupils and gunmen are located.

“We should use the latest sophisticated electronic gadgets to be able to identify where these pupils and bandits are.

“The recent one now is from Russia; we want him (Tinubu) to adopt it. There are vehicles now Russia built. They will send these vehicles into the forests and bushes. The vehicles will release smoke, and the smoke can travel from Abuja to Kano.

“Once you are in the forests and you inhale it, you will sleep for three days. It will not kill you; it will not harm you.

“If we can bring such vehicles to Nigeria, they will help in getting these pupils released and bringing them back home.

“It will also go a long way in addressing banditry, kidnapping and other vices in the country.

“If we want this country to be a good, perfect and rough shoulder with the community of nations, anybody that is bringing negativity should deal with him or her,” the director-general said.

He called on Nigerians to support Mr Tinubu’s government, saying that his administration was just about 11 months old.

According to him, the government has rolled out some policies that will bring succour, sanity and rejuvenation to this country.

“But it seems some people have been fighting dirty. We are calling on them; we are all brothers and we don’t have any other country apart from Nigeria. We must come together to build a strong and formidable country.

“We urge the president to roll out more policies, especially on the economy so that Nigeria will be out of the woods, as you can see that the hardship is biting on everybody.

“Those who are his close associates should also do the right things to help him.

Finally, we will like the president to look back because people have been accusing the confederation of All Progressives Congress (APC) support groups that we brought this government.

“And we kept telling them yes. We know President Bola Tinubu is going to turn this country around for the better,” the director-general said.
