Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero, emir of newly created Bichi emirate in Kano state has condemned the abduction of nine native Kano children by a gang of six Igbo kidnappers, who also renamed and converted the victims to Christianity.
Kano Focus reports that the Kano Police Command had rescued nine missing children and paraded six Igbo persons who have confessed to abducting children and selling them in Onitsha, Anambra state.
The emir issued the warning on Wednesday while receiving the state commissioner of police (CP) Ahmed Iliyasu at his palace in Bichi local government area.
He said although Kano is a multi-cultural city that accommodates guests from all parts of the country, the people of the state would not tolerate those that are coming into the state “with evil intentions”.
”Our brothers and sisters from southern part of this country are good people, evil act from few of them will not change our minds, but we need them to publicly condemned this act in its entirety,” he said.
Mr Bayero added that those coming from the south with “evil minds” should either change or leave the state.
He also commended CP Iliyasu and the team of operation ‘Puff Adder’ for their efforts in rescuing the nine Kano children from Onitsha and returning them to their parents.
On his part, Mr Iliyasu said he was at the palace together with the executive members of the Police Community Relations Committee (PCRC) to pay home to the emir, before holding a town hall meeting with the people of Bichi.
