As the spate of child kidnapping reaches alarming rate in Lagos, a firm, Background Check International (BCI), will today flag off a national awareness and sensitisation event among working mothers in Nigeria.
The company said the event with the theme: “Averting the Ris-ing Spate of Child Kidnapping in Nigeria”, also forms part of its corporate social responsibility (CSR) to the country.
The Managing Director of the company, Mr Kola Olugbodi, told Daily Times, that the inaugural seminar will be coming up at the Lagos Chamber of Commerce (LCCI) Conference and Exhibi-tion Centre, Alausa, Ikeja, Lagos by 11am.
Olugbodi said the awareness campaign will further be taken around major cities of Nigeria, adding that his firm, BCI, believes that education can help dust off the ignorance making the populace fall prey to kidnappers.
“Our strategy is to make those that will attend the seminars go back to their workplaces and communities and enlighten others on the causes, effects and future implications of kidnapping in any society”, the BCI managing direc-tor noted.
