1. Katsina

2. Zamfara

3. Borno

4. Kaduna

5. Niger

6. Ondo

7. Cross Rivers

8. Edo

9. Rivers

The ex-senator, however, did not disclose the records he relied on when compiling the list.

The list has generated huge reactions from users on Twitter. While some users claimed the list was incomplete, others disagreed outrightly with the activist for including some states.

A third group, on the other hand, questioned where Shehu Sani got his information from.

"Sir, you should be probed DSS for stating the above States. Where do you get the hypothesis from?"

@MrLastBorn said:

"Where is Solo, Kano and Benue. Cross Rivers and Ondo have no business on this your list."

@dmicmaster stated:

"Are u currently living in Cross River to decide whether or not they should be there...."

@medalarchi said:

"Distinguished Senator, Cross River is absolutely exempted from your list sir. There is an exceptional security architecture designed by Gov. Ben Ayade in CRS, known as Operation Akpakwu. Hence, member states should emulate same in eradicating kidnappings, etc"

Meanwhile, the deputy vice-chancellor of Anchor University owned by Deeper Life Ministries, John Fatokun, was on Monday, January 18, kidnapped by some unknown gunmen.

Fatokun, according to sources in the university who spoke with PM News, was abducted by armed criminals on his way to drop his children at the Deeper Life High School in Nasarawa.
