Two more students of Greenfield University, Kaduna State have been killed by their abductors.
According to a statement made available to journalists on Monday and signed by the Commissioner of Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan said, security agencies have recovered two more corpses of the abducted students.
He said: “On a sad note, security agencies have just reported to the Kaduna State Government the recovery of two more dead bodies of Greenfield University students, killed by armed bandits today, Monday 26th April 2021.
“The retrieved corpses have been evacuated to a mortuary, and the university has been notified of the development.”
Aruwan said Kaduna State governor, Nasir El-Rufai is saddened by the development, while he condemned the killing of innocent students.
“The Government sends its deep empathy to their families and the university management, and prays for the repose of their souls,” he stated.
However, some parents of the abducted students have revealed that bandits threatened to kill two or more students if ransom wasn’t paid.
Bandits stormed the institution on Tuesday last week and kidnapped an unconfirmed number of students after killing a security guard on the spot.
