Nigerians Cry Out As Deadline Bandits Gave To Kill All Kidnapped Students Approaches

The criminals behind the abduction of 23 Greenfield University students and staff have threatened to kill the remaining students of the Kaduna-based institution in their captivity if by Tuesday the government fails to pay the ransom they had earlier demanded.


In an interview with the Hausa Service of the Voice of America, the bandits behind the April 20 abductions also said they recently killed five of their victims to show the government’s failure.

The bandits had made a demand of ₦800 million after abducting the students, but three days after their demands were not met, they killed three students before murdering an additional two a few days later.

A leader of the bandit group who identified himself as Sani Idris Jalingo, in an interview with the VOA, said if the Kaduna State Government or the families of the abducted students fail to pay a ransom of ₦100 million as well as provide them with 10 brand new Honda motorcycles by Tuesday, the remaining students will be murdered.

This has led to widespread outcry from Nigerians saying these students must not be killed. See what people are saying below:
