Buhari, in a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, warned that “this administration will not succumb to blackmail by bandits who target innocent school students in the expectations of huge ransom payments.”

He also appealed to state governments to review their policy of rewarding bandits with money and vehicles because that policy might boomerang disastrously.
