NYPF – CALL ON KANO STATE GOVERNMENT FOR AN IMMEDIATE ACTION AND SET A LAW OVER PHONE SNATCHERS IN THE STATE.
Northern Youth Progressive Forum under the watch of Comr. Aminu Ahmad Yakasai (Mandieta) disclosed in a press conference that phone robbery and snatching become rampant as some young men in the state metropolis, mostly drug addicts, have devised so many approaches of robbing people their phones by attacking them with lethal weapons especially knives and other sharped objects to forcefully take away their phones.
The snatchers consider places such as bus stops, traffic junctions, less busy streets and other related areas to carry out their heinous act. They simply point knives at their victims; demand for their mobile phones and any slight resistance could be disastrous to the victims which numberless of people lost their lives while some are injured in 8that aspect.
In view of this the 7leadership of NPYF call on the Kano State government as a policy maker to work in synergy with Kano State Police Command in order to look over this issue with immediate effect to take actions and set penalty which will help to curtail the counterfeit mobile phone robbery, snatching and enhance effective security in Kano state.
Other aims include easing the use of mobile phones and other smart devices in all public places without fear of being attacked by mobile phone snatchers.
The National President also reiterated that concerning about the deteriorating situation on phone robbery and other threats to the lives of individuals and personal liberty of Kano State people, setting a law under this issue will be the only way to curtail the phone snatching in the state.
We hope you will consider our submission to take an action with immediate effect and bring the matter to an end.
