The Bandits who masterminded the abduction of over twenty-two students and a member of staff from Greenfield University, Kaduna State on April 20, has threatened to kill the remaining students by Tuesday.
A leader of the criminal group who identified himself as Sani Idris Jalingo recently made known in an interview with Hausa Service of Voice of America (VOA), monitored by Daily Trust, that unless the Kaduna State Government or the families of the kidnap victims pays a ransom of N100 million as well as provide them with 10 brand Honda motorcycles, the will kill those students by Tuesday.
“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,” he said.
Asked if he sees himself as a terrorist, Jalingo laughed and said: “I’m not but a food seeker.”
Emphasising 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 alleged that they have 17 students in their custody, comprising of 15 girls and two male students.
