Kidnappers of the Greenfield University Kaduna, students have threatened to kill 17 more students if N100m ransom is not paid to them.
The armed bandits had on April 18 stormed the school in the early hours of the day and abducted twenty-two students and a member of staff. Five of the students have been killed by the bandits.
A leader of the kidnap gang named Sani Idris Jalingo, has threatened to kill the remain kidnapped students by Tuesday, if the Kaduna State Government or their families fail to pay a ransom of N100 million as well as provide them with 10 brand Honda motorcycles.
Jalingo further said 17 students are in their custody, comprising 15 females and two male students.
“We heard the utterances of the Kaduna State Governor that he will not pay ransom to bandits to purchase additional arms.
He also said he told his family that he will not pay ransom if any of them is kidnapped. So, we want to show that the Nigerian Government has failed that is why we killed the students,” he said.
Jalingo who was asked if he sees himself as a terrorist, replied
“I’m not but a food seeker
Stressing on his threat, the kidnap kingpin 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 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.
