Governor Nasir El-Rufai vowed, for the umpteenth time on Friday, that he would not pay ransom for the release of any kidnap victim in the state.

El-Rufai said even if his son falls victim of abduction, he would pay no ransom.

“I’ll rather pray for him to make heaven, because I won’t pay any ransom,” the governor said in a radio interview in Kaduna.

He said he has warned his family members to be careful and avoid being abducted, stressing that he made it clear to them that he would never pay ransom for their freedom, should any of them be kidnapped.

“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.”

The governor who had been under pressure to get the kidnapped students of the Federal College of Forestry and Mechanisation, Kaduna, freed said government is looking at some other means of securing their freedom.

But he ruled out payment of ransom.

In earlier interviews, the governor said kidnappers do not deserve to live. He said they should all be wiped out.
