PRESIDENT Muhammadu Buhari has expressed hapiness over the release of abducted female students in Zamfara State, even as he has declared that the time has come to reverse incidents of kidnapping completely.
A statement issued by Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, Tuesday, in Abuja, disclosed that Buhari, while reacting to the development said: “I join the families and people of Zamfara State in welcoming and celebrating the release of these traumatized female students.”
The president was excited that their ordeal came to a happy end without any incident, stating that “being held in captivity is an agonising experience not only for the victims, but also their families and all of us.”
He again called for greater vigilance by the people in order to use human intelligence to nip the bandits’ plans in the bud.
He warned that ransom payments will continue to prosper kidnapping and urged the police and the military to go after kidnappers and bring them to justice.
