Hajia Asia, the wife of Kaduna State Governor Mallam Nasir El-Rufai, has stated that she is willing to die at the hands of kidnappers in exchange for Nigerian peace.

She urged Nigerians to make sacrifices by refusing to pay ransoms in order to put an end to banditry and kidnapping.

On Wednesday, the Governor’s wife made the remarks in Kaduna while speaking to attendees at a peace and security workshop hosted by Equal Access International (EAI) for Kaduna women.

Mrs El-Rufai who emphasized that ransom should not be paid if she is kidnapped added that, “we must sacrifice to bring this to an end. I am ready to die in the hands of kidnappers if it will bring peace to this country.

“For as long as you continue to pay 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 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 and they hurt people around, they will not change. Collectively as a country, we have to say no, we can not 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.
