It is nothing new that the state of insecurity in the nation seems to be worsening on a daily basis. Banditry, kidnapping, herdsmen clashes, abduction, and murder are now daily news items, this has thrown the nation into a state of emergency. The Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) has come out to plead with terrorists and criminals to stop the abductions, they also added that abducting Nigerians will not stop the hardships in the country.
The Arewa Consultative Forum went on to say that, spilling of blood will not solve whatever grievances the abductors may have. They also thanked well-meaning Nigerians who had taken the risk of negotiating with the bandits to free hostages, particularly the students of Greenfield University.
The ACF further revealed that they are against the payment of ransom to the bandits even though they agree worth negotiating with them.
Do you agree with the ACF’s view on ransom? Leave a comment below.
Thanks for reading.
