SDP Presidential Candidate Condemns Rising Kidnappings, Questions Government’s Role

Adewole Adebayo, the Presidential candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) in the 2023 elections, has expressed condemnation for the recent surge in kidnapping incidents across the country.

The Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja, has witnessed an alarming increase in kidnappings in the past few days, prompting Adebayo to address the issue.

Security Concerns and Government’s Role:

Adebayo, emphasizing security as a primary government responsibility, criticized the authorities for their failure to protect citizens from the escalating threat of kidnappers.

In a post on his official social media handle, he questioned why Nigerians continue to endure suffering at the hands of bandits and kidnappers, highlighting the government’s role in addressing criminality.

Government’s Accountability:

The presidential candidate asserted that while the populace expresses concern over the activities of bandits and kidnappers, equal scrutiny should be directed towards the government’s accountability.

He underscored that preventing criminality falls squarely within the government’s duties and responsibilities.

Call for Government Action:

Adebayo called on key figures such as President Bola Tinubu, the National Security Adviser, Mallam Nuhu Ribadu, the Nigeria Police, and the Department of State Services (DSS) to take decisive action against kidnapping.

He asserted that these entities possess the requisite knowledge and resources to end the menace, emphasizing his belief that the government is deeply involved in addressing this issue.


As concerns about the safety of citizens intensify, Adebayo’s statements reflect a broader sentiment questioning the government’s effectiveness in ensuring security.

The call for concrete actions to curb kidnapping underscores the urgency of addressing this growing threat.

The government’s response and actions in the aftermath of these statements will be closely monitored.

Adebayo’s strong condemnation of the kidnapping surge and direct questioning of the government’s role sparks discussions about the broader issue of security and public safety.

The mention of key figures in the call for action adds a layer of accountability to prominent leaders, raising expectations for a swift and effective response.

The ongoing situation necessitates a comprehensive approach to ensure the safety and well-being of citizens.
