Kaduna State Governor Nasir El-Rufai has said President Muhammadu Buhari was not aware of the threat by terrorists to abduct him and he was the one who told him about it.
The terrorists who abducted some Abuja-Kaduna train passengers in March shared a video over the weekend where they were flogging the captives. They then threatened to abduct Buhari and El-Rufai if their demands are not met.
El-Rufai addressed the threat while speaking on a Radio Programme on Wednesday night, July 27.
He disclosed that for the past five years he has been advocating for the bombing of terrorists camps wherever they are, saying it’s the only solution to the problem.
He said: “I also heard about a video where they threatened to abduct Buhari and myself. I have been warned to be careful including my families too. How can we be in a country with soldiers, police and Federal Government but some terrorists will be threatening to abduct the president?
“If in the past those in government think this is a joke and see it as only happening in Katsina, Zamfara, Kaduna and Niger, it’s now at home and we must rise up to deal with these people.
“This is why I met with the president on Sunday and told him about these problems.
“I also told him about the video because up to that day he was not even aware. I told him and the following day Zamfara state governor, Bello Matawalle, also confirmed to him that he saw the video too so as to take action.
“The president assured me that he met with the service chiefs 3-4 days before our meeting and that he gave them a clear directive to have a comprehensive military operation to deal with those people. We hope, God’s willing the soldiers and police that were given the directives will hasten up to finish the job. We don’t have to wait until they (terrorists) strike before we respond.
“They (soldiers) must go after them wherever they are to deal with them. The truth is we are worried about the security situation but we hope the federal government will do the right thing.”
