“Don’t Pay Ransom If I’m Kidnapped” — Hajiya Asia El-Rufai
Wife of the Governor of Kaduna State, Hajiya Asia El-Rufai, has said that there should be a sacrifice on the part of Nigerians to end banditry and kidnapping, insisting that no ransom should be paid if she is kidnapped.
Asia spoke in Kaduna while addressing participants of a peace and security training, organized for Kaduna women by Equal Access International, EAI.
She told the women who were drawn from Chikun, Kajuru and Jama’a local government areas that Nigerians must get back their once peaceful country and women have a great role to play in achieving that.
According to her:
“We must sacrifice to bring this to an end. I am ready to die in the hands of kidnappers if it will bring peace to this country.”
