Bandits who kidnapped students of Greenfield University, Kaduna, have threatened to kill the remaining students in their custody by Tuesday.
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. Five of the students were killed by the bandits days later.
Sani Jalingo, the bandits’ leader, told Voice of America that he would kill the students if they do not get N100 million and ten motorcycles.
He said 17 of the abducted students, including 15 females and two males are in their custody. He disclosed that the families of the remaining students had so far paid N55 million to them.
