The Federal Government has maintained that no ransom was paid for the release of the abducted Kuriga children in Kaduna State.

The Minister of Information, Mohammed Idris gave the position of FG while briefing journalists on Monday. Idris said the victims secured their freedom through the concerted efforts of security agencies in the country.

The minister said, “President Bola Tinubu is determined to end this cycle of payment of ransom to kidnappers. The government believes that this continues to encourage these kidnappers, these criminal elements to perpetrate this act within the Nigerian nation and it is the official position of government as announced here last week that ransom will not be tolerated. Ransom will not be encouraged ransom will not be paid by the government.”
