Aisha in her reaction to the unfortunate incident, says the government have empowered terrorist to continue kidnapping and has dumped its duty of protecting the lives and properties of Nigerians.
Taking to her Twitter handle, she wrote, “Terrorists have been emboldened to keep attacking and abducting. The government has been enabled to keep abdicating its responsibilities.
“When we are sick and tired of the atrocities, we will forget our differences and go en masse to the Villa and demand Buhari resigns. “
