By Samuel OamenThe Federal Government has declared kidnapping of students is not peculiar to Nigeria.It stated even developed nations, including the United States also experience school kidnapping.Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, stated this on Monday while featuring on Channels Televisions News Night monitored by The Nation.He said: Even in the most developed countries of this world, school kidnapping takes place. Last year, in the US, we all witnessed three of four school kidnappings and that is in probably one of the most developed countries in the world.The thing about terrorism is that the terrorists dont live by your own rules and they are especially interested in soft targets.
