The Senator representing Kaduna Central at the Senate, Shehu Sani has reacted to the killing of a Briton identified as Ms Faye Mooney by suspected kidnappers during the recent attack on Kajuru, Kaduna State.
In a tweet posted on his time-line on Monday, Sani said the kidnap and killing of Mooney was a reflection of our tragedy.
He wrote: “Ms Faye Mooney felled to the Kidnappers bullet but factually felled by our failings. She was not a victim but a martyr & a hero who believed in us and walked into our mines with flowers and with love.
“She was a reflection of our tragedy, our perils and the bitter truth about our present.”
The death of Mooney (an expatriate) who was among the two people killed and three kidnapped on April 19 at a recreational resort in Kajuru Local Government Area of the state, was confirmed by Kaduna State Police Command’s Public Relations Officer, DSP Yakubu Sabo.
