    Bandits threaten to kill other abducted Greenfield varsity students

    Kidnappers of the students of Greenfield University, Kaduna have threatened to kill the remaining students in their custody.

    At least 23 students including a staff of the privately-owned university, located along the Kaduna-Abuja highway were abducted from the school on April 20, 2021.

    A few days later, five of the students were killed by the bandits.

    Meanwhile, the bandits’ leader, Sani Jalingo, who spoke to the Hausa Service of the Voice of America, demanded a ransom of N100 million and ten motorcycles.

    Failure by the Kaduna State Government or the students’ family to meet the demands by Tuesday, Jalingo warned that the remaining students in their custody would be killed.

    He insisted that if the money (N100m) and the items (motorcycles) demanded were not provided on Tuesday, trucks would be used to evacuate the lifeless bodies of the remaining students.

    He said 17 of the abducted students, including 15 females and two males are in their custody.

    Jalingo disclosed that the families of the remaining students had so far paid N55 million to them.

    Following the kidnap of the students and a staff of the school, the bandits had made contact with the parents and demanded N800 million ransom for the release of the students.

    But five of them were later killed for failure to meet the demand.
