The First Lady of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Senator Oluremi Tinubu has expressed profound sorrow over the death of Nabeeha Al-Kadriyar, a 400-level biological science student at Ahmadu Bello University (ABU) in Zaria.

In a post via her official X handle on Monday, the First Lady described Nabeeha’s demise as a “devastating loss” and extended heartfelt condolences to the grieving family.

Senator Tinubu implored the nation to unite in fervent prayers for the safe return of other girls currently held captive by kidnappers.

Addressing the escalating issue of kidnappings and insecurity, she called upon security agencies to intensify their efforts to curb abductions and free the remaining sisters of Nabeeha.

She wrote: “It is with a heavy heart that I acknowledge the devastating loss of Nabeeha and extend my deepest condolences to her grieving family.

“In difficult moments like this, I urge the nation to join in fervent prayers for the safe return of these girls. Let us hold the families close to our hearts in prayers.

“I implore our security agencies to intensify their efforts in addressing the pressing matter of kidnappings and insecurity in our nation.

“The safety and swift return of the Al-Kadriyar sisters and others in captivity should be our paramount concern.

“To the parents, especially mothers, I appeal for intensified prayers for our children and for peace to prevail in our beloved country.

“May the Almighty God comfort the Al-Kadriyar family for their loss, and may God bring the other children back home safely.

“God Bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”

On January 2, Nabeeha and her sisters were taken from their home in the Bwari Area Council of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT). Their father, Mansoor Al-Kadriyar, who was initially taken captive with them was later released by the kidnappers to raise a ransom of ₦60 million.

However, the kidnappers increased the ransom to ₦100 million and killed Nabeeha when the deadline was not met. They have threatened to kill the remaining five sisters if the ransom is not paid by January 17.
