Tinubu commends Army over rescue of Nasarawa students

…No ransom paid – Gov Sule

President Ahmed Bola Tinubu has commended men and officers of the 177 Guard Battalion, Keffi, for their efforts that led to the rescue of four female students of the  Nasarawa State University, Keffi.

Nasarawa State Governor, Abdullahi, conveyed the President’s message when he visited Commander of the battalion on Friday.

Sule told journalists that he was at the barracks to convey the appreciation of President Tinubu to the Commandant for their efforts in rescuing the girls.

According to him, “I am not aware of any ransom. Once security officials mount pressure on the kidnappers, I don’t think there was ransom. There was no ransom paid to my knowledge. The university didn’t pay any ransom and neither did the military,” he stated.

He equally expressed appreciation seeing the girls in good health, with their parents making arrangements to receive their daughters back.

Sule noted that the military is putting up additional measures to beef up security not only around the university but also on the Akwanga-Abuja highway. 

“I am happy and I am here to show great appreciation to the Commandant and also all the other security agents that also participated in the rescue operations.  

“The Commandant informed me that the police and civil defense also participated as well as leaders of the community. 

“I am happy also to see the parents getting ready to see how they can take over their children,” Sule said.
