Mr Bello stated this while addressing newsmen on Wednesday, following the abduction of some students and staff of the College on Tuesday night.

“It is not in our policy as a government to pay ransom to bandits because we have noticed that they use this sand money to buy arms and ammunition.

“However, the government will be ready to support and assist repentant bandits,” the governor said.
