Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, has revealed to Nigerians the reason for his son, Abubakar Al-Sadiq El-Rufai, withdrawal from a Kaduna public school. ayokinews.com reports
It should be recalled that last year, the Kaduna state governor enrolled his seven year old son in a Kaduna public school amid the raging insecurity and banditry in the state.
This revelation of seven year old Abubakar’s withdrawal was made known by Governor Nasir El-Rufai, during an interview with BBC Pidgin. He made it known that his son was the target of armed bandits terrorising the state thus necessitating his secret withdrawal from the school while also revealing that his daughter, Nesrin, was also enrolled in the same school when she turned 6.
“My son and my daughter are registered in the school because his sister became six and we had to register her.
“But we have had to temporarily withdraw them for the security of the school because we got intercepts from at least two groups that are planning to attack the school to kidnap my son.
“I don’t think they will succeed because there will be enough security there to prevent it but other children may be placed in danger.
“We have no idea what weapons they will come with. I have taken a stand against paying bandits and at least three groups of bandits have been intercepted planning to go to Kaduna Capital school and kidnap my son and ‘see if they catch my son, I go say I no go pay ransom?” El-Rufai said.
