Continued Killings In Kaduna Are Bargaining Chips By Bandits For Ransom – Spokesman


By Franca Olivia Isibor (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – The recent killing of students of some tertiary institutions abducted by bandits in Kaduna State has drawn the ire of the administration of Governor Nasir El-Rufai.

According to the governor’s media adviser, Muyiwa Adekeye, the recent spate of killings were attempts by the kidnappers to blackmail the government into abandoning its policy of not negotiating with bandits.

Reacting to a viral video of an interview of Governor Nasir El-Rufai in 2014, in which  his principal had called on the government of former President Goodluck Jonathan to use all options, including negotiation, to rescue the Chibok girls who were abducted in Borno State, Adekeye faulted those blaming his principal for his stance on the security situation in the state, adding that the nation’s journey since the Chibok tragedy has proven that the solution to violent crimes was a robust response from the state and its coercive agencies.
