Boom RadioNG | March 25, 2024

The Federal Government has today insisted no ransom was paid for the release of the abducted Kuriga children in Kaduna State.

This was disclosed by the Minister of Information, Mohammed Idris, while briefing State House Correspondents after the conclusion of the Federal Executive Council meeting saying the victims secured their freedom through the concerted efforts of security agencies in the country.

In his statement, the minister said, “President Bola Tinubu is determined to end this cycle of payment of ransom to kidnappers. The government believes that this continues to encourage these kidnappers, these criminal elements to perpetrate this act within the Nigerian nation and it is the official position of government as announced here last week that ransom will not be tolerated. Ransom will not be encouraged ransom will not be paid by the government.”
