The Federal Government led by President Muhammadu Buhari has reassured Nigerians that his administration will do everything to stamp out banditry, kidnapping, terrorism and other related crimes.
Mr. Buhari stated this after the abducted students of Greenfield were realised, 40 days after their captors struck.
“The President assures that the Nigeria Government will continue to work with State Governments to step up the protection of lives and property across the country, including educational institutions and other vulnerable targets,” the presidency tweeted on its official handle on Saturday.
“Kidnapping is a serious crime and a gross violation of the rights of fellow citizens; President Buhari assures that kidnapping and all other forms of criminality will continue to be met with zero tolerance by security agents.”
“Once again, the President condoles with the families of the students and staff that were killed by the abductors,” it added.
It was gathered that the students were dropped off at a location along the Abuja-Kaduna Expressway and were received by the Chairman of the Parents Forum, Markus Zarmai together with some other parents.
The parents who expressed their unhappiness with the Government’s negligence, admitted to buying 8 new motorcycles for the abductors to top off on the N180m ransom they requested.
