Kidnappers of the students of Greenfield University, Kaduna have threatened to kill the remaining students in their custody.
According to reports, 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.
He also threatened to kill remaining students in their custody, and use trucks to evacuate the lifeless bodies of the remaining students, if all the ransom demanded were not provided on Tuesday by the Kaduna State Government or the students’ family.
He said 17 of the abducted students, including 15 females and two males are in their custody.
Jalingo also disclosed that the families of the remaining students had so far paid N55 million to them.
Recall that over 30 students including a staff of the privately-owned university, Greenfield, located along the Kaduna-Abuja highway were abducted from the school on April 20, 2021.
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.
Unfortunately, five of them were later killed for failure to meet the demand.
