Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani Kayode has applauded the immediate past Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Prof Isa Pantami, for his intervention during the abduction of Malam Monsoor Al-Kadriyar and his five daughters in Bwari area of Abuja.
Fani-Kayode insisted that Pantami deserves accolades for his actions.
Recall that the Al-Kadriyar siblings were abducted by kidnappers alongside their father from their residence at Zuma 1 in Abuja.
The abductors later demanded 60 million naira as ransom for the release of the victims.
However, one of victims, Nabeeha, was killed due to the failure of the family to raise the money.
Pantami subsequently stepped in and announced that 50 million naira has been raised through a friend for the release of the victims.
Speaking on the situation during the unveiling and public presentation of a book written by Pantami at the Fraser Suites and Hotels Abuja on Wednesday, Fani-Kayode noted that it was his modest intervention that served as catalyst for the eventual freedom of the kidnapped sisters.
He insisted that Pantami should not be vilified for his innocent intervention in an effort to get the family of his friend and brother free from the den of kidnappers.
