Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir Ahmad El-Rufai, says he withdrew his son Abubakar, from public school because bandits were targeting him for abduction.

The Governor said he decided to send his son to a public school because he wanted to show his commitment to fixing public education and raising the standards.

Then all of a sudden, El-Rufai withdrew his son from the public school sometime this year.

El-Rufai while speaking in an interview with BBC Pidgin, said not only did he withdraw Abubakar from the school, that he also withdrew one of his daughters who like Abubakar was also enrolled in the school when she clocked six years old.

He said he did that because security report on the plans of bandits to kidnap his son Abubakar and that they have intercepted two sets of bandits trying to kidnap Abubakar over stand on non-payment of ransom.

According to the Governor: “My son and my daughter are registered in the school because his sister became six and we had to register her,” El-Rufai said.

“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?”

Abubakar, according to El-Rufai is currently being coached at home, but the Kaduna State Governor insisted that Abubakar will take his examinations at Kaduna Capital School.
