Outrage as abductors threaten to kill remaining Greenfield varsity students
NEWSMAN, Kaduna – Abductors of the Greenfield University, Kaduna have threatened to kill the remaining 17 students if they do not get their N100 million ransom today.
In an interview with the Voice Of America (VOA) Hausa, leader of the team, Sani Idris Jalingo (also known as Baleri), handed down the threat in a recorded audio clip that lasted for three minute.
He explained that affected parents had paid N55 million which they allegedly used in feeding the captives.
There are 15 females and two males in our captivity, including the son of the late Emir, Shehu Idris, identified as Hamza. We have heard the governor ranting that he would not pay a kobo as ransom to any bandit or kidnapper. He even warned his family members that should anyone of them be kidnapped, he wouldn’t pay a kobo to free them.Jalingo said
The ringleader said they eliminated the quintet to show seriousness.
Asked if he is a hoodlum, he giggled and responded: “I’m not a criminal. I am just living to survive.”
One of the abducted students, who spoke in the video, Hamza, pleaded with government to settle their abductors, while another undergraduate introduced as Abigail Usman stressed that the bandits meant business.
Meanwhile with the #Greenfeilduniversity trending, Nigerians on Twitter have continued to pray for the release pf the students, calling on the government and security agencies to act fast, and also demanding the release of the remaining students.
Recall that twenty-two undergraduates were seized from campus almost two weeks ago by unknown gunmen. Five of them have since been eliminated by the captors.
