The Coalition of Northern Groups, CNG, has lamented that since the disappearance of their officials, the BOT Chairman of CNG, Nastura Ashir Shariff and the national Coordinator, Balarabe Rufai, their whereabouts still remain unknown.

DAILY POST recalls that Shariff and Rufai were picked by men suspected to be security personnel Thursday afternoon.

CNG spokesman, Abdul-Azeez Suleiman in a statement on Thursday night, said their whereabouts remain unknown.

He said, “We wish to inform the public that as at 6.30pm on Thursday, the BOT Chairman of CNG, Nastura Ashir Shariff and the national Coordinator, Balarabe Rufai’s whereabouts remain unknown.

The statement observed that, “Our people who have been trailing the arrest vehicles reported that they lost the trail at Jere on the way to Abuja after driving around Kaduna town with a brief detour towards the state government House through Gwamna Road unto the Abuja expressway.”

“We have, however, made contact with the DSS Director of Kaduna State and he insisted the arrest was not carried out by his men and he was not aware of where they are being held,” the statement explained.

According to the statement, an eye witness account to the arrest has, however, affirmed that the arrest was carried out by un-uninformed officers in black suits driving hooded vehicles.

The CNG lamented, “We find it unfortunate that Nigerian Security agencies would rather find convenience to intimidate harmless civilians going about their civil functions than confronting the challenges posed by kidnappers who roam freely without any form of security presence.

“Meanwhile, we have placed all our 19 northern states Coordinators on high alert with instructions to mobilize for massive street protests by 10am tomorrow, Friday to demand the disclosure of the whereabouts of our officials.”

The statement strongly condemned this act of impunity displayed by an administration that has no regards for rule of law and no respect for human dignity and liberty.

“We remain determined to keep on the struggle for the emancipation of the northerner and the restoration of peace and security,” the statement assured.
