“Race and free this elderly man who has many health challenges,” the Kaduna State Chapter of the APC says”.
The Kaduna State chapter of All Progressives Congress, APC, on Friday called for the unconditional release of 75-year-old Stephen Kitchener, abducted in Zaria on Tuesday.
In a statement by the state Interim Chairman of the party, Hakeem Baba-Ahmed, described the abducted medical doctor as “an icon of service and humility”.
“Dr Kitchener has dedicated his life to the service of his community, and it is almost certain that his kidnappers are mistaken in believing that he has the type of wealth needed to buy his freedom.
“We join many others in praying for his safe release, and appeal to his kidnappers to free him without delay.”
Mr. Baba-Ahmed particularly urged Vice-President Namadi Sambo and Governor Mukhtar Yero of Kaduna State to support efforts to “race and free this elderly man who has many health challenges”.
