The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike has cautioned the public against the practice of paying ransom to bandits and kidnappers, warning that such actions will encourage the scourge.
The warning against ransom payment followed reports that Nigerians had raised over N50 million through crowdfunding to pay the ransom for the release of five daughters of Abuja resident Mansoor Al-Kadriya.
Wike made the plea at a town hall meeting on insecurity held at Bwari Area Council.
He promised to go on hot pursuit of bandits, constituting a nuisance for the residents of FCT and making life miserable for them.
