We must treat kidnappers as terrorists – Tinubu



1701574181 Bola Tinubu

President Bola Tinubu has called for the treatment of kidnappers as terrorists, denouncing the rate of kidnapping nationwide.

Tinubu made this remark on Tuesday at a Ramadan dinner with members of the Federal Judiciary, led by the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Olukayode Ariwoola.

“We must treat kidnappers as terrorists. They are cowardly,” the president said.

“They have been degraded. They look for soft targets. They go to schools, kidnap children, and cause disaffection.

“We must treat them equally as terrorists in order to get rid of them, and I promise you we will get rid of them.”

Both serving and retired judicial officers, including two former CJNs, Justice Mahmud Mohammed and Justice Walter Onnoghen, attended the dinner.
