Abdulsalami Abubakar, former Military Head of State, has expressed concern over the continued killings, kidnappings and cattle rustling across the country.
Abubakar prayed that the incessant hostage taking and crimes come to an end.

The former leader urged Nigerians to continue to live in peace with one another for the socio-economic development of the country.
According to Abubakar, “I do hope all human beings will take the lesson of the fasting period to serve God and be each others keeper and also to maintain peace all over the world.
“I hope peace will reign in Nigeria so that these problems we are going through, kidnapping, hostage taking, cattle rustling will come to an end.”
