Governor of Kaduna state, Nasir El-Rufai has said he will not pay for ransom even if his own sons were to be kidnapped by suspected bandits.
According to the Governor, he would rather pray that his son makes heaven rather than pay ransom for the release of his son if he was kidnapped.
In a radio interview on Friday April 9, the governor who has consistently been against negotiations with bandits, was asked if he his administration have considered paying for the release of abducted student of Federal College of Forestry Mechanization, Kaduna.
In response to the question, the Governor said his government will not pay for ransom, but would consider other means to ensure they are released.
“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.
