President Bola Tinubu has denounced the heinous crimes committed by kidnappers throughout the nation and stated that those responsible for these heinous acts ought to be considered terrorists.

During a Ramadan dinner with members of the Federal judiciary, including Justice Olukayode Ariwoola, the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), the President made the announcement on Tuesday.

Serving and retired judges attended the event, including Justice Mahmud Mohammed and Justice Walter Onnoghen, two former CJNs.

The President reaffirmed the government’s commitment to stopping banditry and declared that those who abduct children are cowards who cannot stand up to the strength of the Nigerian Armed Forces.

According to a statement released by Chief Ajuri Ngelale, President Tinubu said:

”We must treat kidnappers as terrorists. They are cowardly. They have been degraded. They look for soft targets. They go to schools and 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.”
