'Negotiating With Bandits On Our Behalf Is A Crime, Anybody Caught Shall Be Prosecuted'

For more than three weeks now, 39 students studying at Federal College of Forestry, Kaduna State have been in the captivity of bandits who raised their school.

After several pleas and calls from parents and concerned Nigerians, the State Government has insisted on 'No Negotiation' with the Armed Bandits terrorising communities in Kaduna.

Samuel Aruwan, who is the State Commissioner for Internal Security Affairs, disclosed in a statement that the Kaduna State does not allow anyone to negotiate with bandits on its behalf.

The commissioner warned that Governor Nasir El-Rufai has promised to prosecute anyone found guilty of negotiating with bandits.

The statement reads, 'the position of the Kaduna State Government remains the same: the governor (El-Rufai) will not negotiate with or pay ransom to bandits.

Aruwa also urged residents of the state to report any individual or persons caught engaging in such dialogue or negotiation.

For report, the following contact details were provided by the government;

"Call Kaduna State Operation Room on 09034000060 and 0817018999.
