We’ll Kill 17 Greenfield Varsity Students If N100m Is Not Paid — Bandits


Bandits on Monday threat­ened to kill the remaining 17 students abducted from Greenfield University, Ka­duna State, if N100 million ransom isn’t paid by today.

22 students and an individual from staff were kidnapped from the school grounds along the Kaduna-Abuja highway on April 20 and within seven days, five of them were killed.

In a meeting with the Hausa Service of Voice of America (VOA), a head of the bandit group who identified himself as Sani Idris Jalingo, said if the Kaduna State government or their families neglected to pay a payment of N100 million just as furnish them with 10 brand Honda bikes by Tuesday, the remaining students will be killed.

Jalingo said there were 17 stu­dents in his custody, including 15 females and two males, among them a grandchild of the late 18th emir of Zazzau, Shehu Idris, whom he identified as Hamza.

The bandit revealed that the families of the students have already raised and paid N55 million to them but claimed they had used the money to feed the students.

He vowed that it was his final warning and should government or the students’ families fail to meet his de­mands, all the students will be killed.

“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 noth­ing 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.”

He warned security agen­cies not to waste their time planting trackers on the mo­torcycles, saying his mem­bers do not go to cities and therefore arresting them will be difficult.
