Bandits have killed another two students of Greenfield University.
The students were among kidnapped from the private university located along the Kaduna- Abuja highway last Tuesday.
Three of the victims were found dead last Friday.
The Kaduna State Commissioner for Internal Security and Homeland Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, confirmed the latest murder of the two students.
“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,” he said in a statement.
“The retrieved corpses have been evacuated to a mortuary, and the university has been notified of the development.
“The Government of Kaduna State under the leadership of Nasir El-Rufai is saddened by this evil perpetrated against innocent students abducted while pursuing their education for a glorious future.
“The government sends its deep empathy to their families and the university management and prays for the repose of their souls.”
In recent times, Kaduna has been facing a series of attacks by bandits including assaults on schools.
On March 11, they attacked the Federal College of Forestry Mechanization Afaka in the Igabi Local Government Area of the state and kidnapped 39 students, 29 of whom are still with their abductors.
Governor Nasir El-Rufai says nothing would make him pay ransom to bandits. He said the military should, instead, launch a major assault on the kidnappers and “kill them all”.
