The federal government has reacted to the recent crowdfunding set up by private individuals to help rescue kidnapped victims in the country.
Reacting to the recent developments, the Defence Minister Mohammed Badaru, issued a warning on Wednesday, cautioning Nigerians against resorting to crowdfunding for ransom to secure the release of abducted individuals.
The defense minister gave this advise during the conclusion of the federal executive council (FEC) meeting in Abuja.
This is coming amidst an increase in abductions in the federal capital territory (FCT), prompting some social media users to express readiness to crowdfund for the victims’ release.
Former Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami, had disclosed on Sunday that his friends contributed N50 million towards the ransom for the release of five sisters abducted in Abuja.
It was reported on January 5 that bandits abducted six sisters and their father in the Bwari area council of the FCT. The kidnappers killed one of the girls after the family failed to pay a ransom of N60 million. [CONTINUE READING HERE]
