Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-rufai, has once again spoken against the payment of random bandits, saying he won’t involve in such even if his son is kidnapped.
El-rufai stated this during a radio interview in Kaduna on Friday.
“I mean it and I will say it again here. Even if my son is kidnapped, I will rather pray for him to make heaven instead, because I won’t pay any ransom,” he said.
The governor also said his administration is not considering paying ransom to secure the release of the students abducted by bandits from Federal College of Forestry Mechanisation, Kaduna, in March.
He said his government is “absolutely not paying ransom,” but considering other means to ensure the students are returned to their parents.
El-rufai had earlier said on Thursday said bandits must be wiped out completely because they have lost the right to life.
