But when asked on Saturday whether the government had paid ransom or was considering the payment of ransom, the minister said, “No”.

He said:“We employ kinetic and non-kinetic (measures), you don’t throwaway invitation to engage but the overall strategy you keep to your chest.”

The Minister also said the government won’t tolerate any form of criminality in any form.

He said:“Bandits all over the world work with psychology of people. Deliberately, they target women and children because this is what will attract a lot of global outcry. That is exactly what bandits do all over the world.

“The government has put in place, all along, various strategies to contain banditry, to fight insurgency, to fight kidnapping. Some of these measures are kinetic, some are not kinetic. We didn’t get here overnight and that is why it is difficult to get out one day.

“Criminality in any form will not be tolerated by government. At the same time, government has a duty to look at the underlining causes of some of these criminalities in other to address them.

“I was in Minna with my colleagues, the Ministers of Interior and Police Affairs, the IG, and the National Security Adviser on Wednesday to get firsthand information on the abduction of these Kagara schoolboys. I can tell you that as at today that the government is on top of the matter.”

Why I Am Shocked And Saddened Over Killing In Chad – President Buhari

Published

on

 

President Muhammadu Buhari has revealed that he is shocked and saddened in the wake of the ethnic clashes in the South Eastern Region of Salamat, Chad that claimed several lives.

Recall that ethnic tension in the central African country of Chad left at least 55 people dead and more than 40 injured as three villages were burned to the ground.

The clashes in the south-eastern region of Salamat erupted between different ethnic groups on Wednesday night in the villages around the provincial capital of Am Timan, according to Salamat governor Abel Yamabaye Massira.

However, Buhari extended heartfelt condolences to President Idriss Deby Itno of Chad over the incident.

“I am shocked and saddened by the incident that shattered decades of relative peace and stability in Chad,” Buhari said.

He added that “ethnic and tribal clashes is a threat to African unity and stability and Nigeria joins the rest of Africa to deplore the latest eruption of violence in Chad.”

The president underscored the need for African leaders and people to manage their diversity with tolerance and understanding.

He noted that “a threat to stability in one part of Africa is a threat to the rest of us.”

According to Buhari “given Africa’s economic and social challenges, we cannot afford mutual destruction that makes our challenges more complicated.”

Meanwhile, President Buhari also commiserates with President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, the government and people of Egypt over the train accident in Northern Cairo that killed dozens of people and injured 98 others.
