Zamfara schoolgirls: ‘Ransom payment will continue to prosper kidnapping’ – Buhari

 


President Muhammadu Buhari, on Tuesday, expressed overwhelming joy over the release of abducted female students in Zamfara State.

Buhari in a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, said he was excited that their ordeal came to a happy end without any incident.

According to him, being held in captivity is an agonizing experience not only for the victims.

He added that ransom payment will continue to prosper kidnapping.

“I join the families and people of Zamfara State in welcoming and celebrating the release of these traumatized female students,” he said.

He also called for greater vigilance by the people so that human intelligence could be collected early enough to nip the bandits’ plans in the bud.

Buhari while urging the Police and the Military to go after the kidnappers and bring them to justice, warned that the time has come to reverse, completely, the grim and heartbreaking incidents of kidnapping.
