Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-rufai, has spoken against the payment of ransom to kidnappers, saying he won’t be involved in such even if his son is kidnapped.
EyewitnessMedia gathered that El-rufai said this during a radio interview on Friday, stating that his administration is not considering paying ransom to secure the release of the students abducted by bandits from the Federal College of Forestry Mechanisation, Kaduna, in March.
According to him, his government is “absolutely not paying ransom” but considering other means to ensure the students are returned to their parents.
“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.
