President Bola Tinubu Reiterates Commitment to End Banditry in Nigeria


President Bola Tinubu has condemned the reprehensible acts perpetrated by kidnappers across the country, declaring that individuals involved in such despicable crimes must be treated as terrorists.

The President made the declaration at a Ramadan Dinner with members of the Federal Judiciary led by the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Olukayode Ariwoola.

Reiterating the government’s resolve to defeat banditry, the President said those who resort to kidnapping are cowards, incapable of confronting the might of the Nigerian armed forces.

”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,” the President said at the dinner.

President Tinubu expressed gratitude to the judiciary for their dedicated service to the nation, while acknowledging their role in upholding the respectability of the Judicial Arm of Government.

The Chief Justice of Nigeria commended the President for the honour of hosting Judicial Officers to a Ramadan Dinner, his commitment to judicial reforms, and for improving the welfare of judicial officers in the country.
