Abductors of the Greenfield University students in Kaduna have issued fresh threat to kill the remaining 17 students in their hostage.

They demanded for a ransom payment of N100 million and 10 brand Honda motorcycles by Tuesday 4th May, 2021 or considered the students wasted.

The 22 abducted students have spent three weeks in custody of bandits having been abducted on 20th April, 2021, out of whom five of them have been killed including a female student.

The threat which is currently heightening tension among parents of the victims and Kaduna residents was revealed in an interview with Hausa Service of the Voice of America (VoA), by the bandit leader who identified himself as Sani Idris Jalingo.

The gang leader confirmed that they are 15 male students and 2 females in their custody including a grandchild of the late 18th emir of Zazzau, Shehu Idris, whom he identified as Hamza.

He further revealed that
the families of the students have already raised and paid N55 million to them but said they had used the money in feeding the students.

“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.

Asked if he sees himself as a terrorist, Jalingo laughed and said: “I’m not but a food seeker.”

Insisting on his threat, the bandit said: “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.”

Jalingo told security agents not to track them as they have nothing to do in cities and towns.
