Government facilitating kidnapping by paying ransom

Nigeria News Update
Issue #16 • View online
Dear MyNigeria reader,
Nigeria has become more insecure than it can ever get as abductions have become the order of the day. The release of the kidnapped students of the Federal College of Forestry Mechanization in Kaduna was short-lived as three more university students from Abia State University (ABSU) were abducted moments after.
While the conversation on if ransom should be paid to these criminals have intensified, many are of the opinion that monies paid the miscreants only facilitates their criminal activities.
Tributes are still pouring in for Pastor Dare, son of Pastor E.A Adeboye, General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) who died on Wednesday, May 5 in Eket, Akwa Ibom. We extend our deepest sympathy to the everyone affected by his demise.
The novel coronavirus is still a major threat in Nigeria as we continually get news of casualties. So far, 165,000 Nigerians have been affected by the virus, while, 2,065 have died.
Our best wishes for a positive week ahead. Please send any comments, suggestions, criticisms, ideas, news, and features to Follow us on all social media platforms at @themynigeria for updates throughout the day. You can also download the MyNigeria App from Google Playstore.
