The abductors of Greenfield University students in Kaduna State has given a one-week ultimatum for the ransom of N800 million to be paid or kill the remaining students.
Twenty-two students were abducted on the 20th of April 2021 from their school. Five were killed and 17 students remain with the captives.
The Governor, Nasir El-Rufai made it clear that he will not engage in negotiations with any bandits.
However, the leader of the bandits who identified himself as Sani Idris Jalingo, while speaking in an interview on Hausa Service of Voice of America (VOA), monitored by Daily Trust, said the remaining students would be killed if the government failed to meet their demand.
“You are speaking with the abductors of Greenfield students. We heard the utterances of the Kaduna State Governor that he will not pay ransom to bandits to purchase additional arms.
“If they fail to bring N100 million and 10 brand-new Honda motorcycles known as Boko Haram by Tuesday, I can assure you they will use trucks to evacuate the bodies of the remaining students,” he said.
