Mrs El-Rufai stated this on Wednesday while addressing participants of a peace and security training organised by Equal Access International in Kaduna.

According to her, the solution to ending kidnapping is to stop payment of ransom and she’s ready to die in the hands of kidnappers if it will bring peace to the country.

“We must sacrifice to bring this to an end and I am ready to die in the hands of kidnappers if it will bring peace to Nigeria.

“For as long as you continue to pay a ransom, it is like you are adding kerosene to fire, you are giving bandits, kidnappers money for ammunition to continue to haunt you. We should not pay a ransom. this is my personal opinion.

“I have said it before and I will say it again; if I am kidnapped, don’t pay any ransom. Rather pray for me that if it is death, I go in a good way and if I am going to be released that I am not violated.

“As long as we are giving them the money, they will hurt people around, they will not change. Collectively as a country, we have to say no. We cannot continue to give them our hard-earned money to buy weapons and drugs to kill and maim our children.

“If we don’t put a stop to this, they will destroy us all. They will even kidnap the person that takes the ransom to them. You will see that some of them you even give the ransom and they still kill the person, so you have lost twice,” she said.
