Kidnapped Sisters: Police Spokesperson Adejobi Under Fire Over Comments 

Muyiwa Adejobi, the spokesperson of the Nigeria police force (NPF), has come under fire on social media over his “don’t cry more than the bereaved” comment on the abduction of six sisters in Abuja.

The abduction of the six sisters and the killing of Nabeeha, one of the girls, have been in the news and trending on various social media platforms.

The girls were kidnapped alongside their father from their residence at Zuma 1 in the Bwari area council of the federal capital territory (FCT) on January 5.

The abductors released the father but the remaining five girls are still in captivity while the corpse of Nabeeha has been released to the family.

Commenting on a post by Bashir Ahmad, former special assistant on digital communications to ex-President Muhammad Buhari, Adejobi asked him or the family members of the girls to “relate with the police codedly”.

He also said the police have been working on the matter but needed “some info”, adding that they will adopt all measures to ensure the girls are rescued.

Responding to the comment of the force spokesperson, a social media user asked “can’t you reach them as you said?” but Adejobi responded by saying “Don’t cry more than the bereaved. OK”.

A lot of Nigerians on on social media have criticised his comment and noted that the police can not provide security to citizens
