“We must treat kidnappers as terrorists…in order to get rid of them, and I promise you, we will get rid of them,’” Tinubu vowed on Tuesday at a Ramadan dinner at the State House, Abuja, with members of the Federal judiciary led by the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Olukayode Ariwoola.

Tinubu’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Ajuri Ngelale, revealed this in a statement he signed late Tuesday titled ‘President Tinubu: We must treat kidnappers as terrorists.’

He condemned what he described as reprehensible acts perpetrated by kidnappers nationwide, declaring that those who resort to kidnapping children are cowards, incapable of confronting the might of the Nigerian Armed Forces.

“We must treat kidnappers as terrorists. They are cowardly. They have been degraded. They look for soft targets.

“They go to schools and kidnap children and cause disaffection. We must treat them equally as terrorists in order to get rid of them, and I promise you we will get rid of them,” said Tinubu.
