The Kwara State House of Assembly has called on the State Commissioner of Police and hierarchies of other security agencies to come up with strategies that would curb incessant kidnapping and ritual killings in the state.

The House made the call following a Matter of Urgent Public Importance  raised by the Leader of the House, Hon Hassan Oyeleke on the “Need to curb incessant kidnapping in Kwara state”.

Reading the resolutions of the House, the Deputy Speaker, Elder Matthew Okedare, expressed displeasure over the spate of  ritual killings in the state and insisted that Stakeholders must brace up to curb the trend  before it got out hand.

The Legislature equally called on public transporters in the state  to ensure that their vehicles were provided with genuine identification numbers  for easy identification in order to address the ugly trend.

The House  enjoined members of the public  to be more security conscious and alert security agencies of any suspected cases in order to rid the state of kidnapping and ritual killings.

The Leader of the House, Dr. Hassan Oyeleke, had while raising the Matter of Urgent Public Importance, narrated the ordeal of a victim and emphasised the need for all stakeholders to play greater roles in addressing the menace.

Other Members who spoke on the Matter advocated the review of the existing law, collaboration between government and the people and increased enlightenment in tackling the menace.
