President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed joy over the release of abducted female students in Zamfara State.
Reacting to the development, the President said “I join the families and people of Zamfara State in welcoming and celebrating the release of these traumatized female students.”
President Buhari said he was excited that their ordeal came to a happy end without any incident, that “being held in captivity is an agonizing experience not only for the victims, but also their families and all of us.”
He however, called for greater vigilance by the people so that human intelligence could be collected early enough to nip the bandits’ plans in the bud.
The Nigerian leader warned that the time has come to reverse completely, the grim and heartbreaking incidents of kidnapping.
“Ransom payments will continue to prosper kidnapping,” he warned, while urging the Police and the Military to go after these kidnappers and bring them to justice.
