Nigerians are panicking on social media because the ultimatum to kill the remaining 17 students of Greenfield University ends today.
PlatnumPost reports that 22 students including staff were abducted from the privately-owned university located along the Kaduna-Abuja highway in Chikun LGA on 20 April 2021.
Sani Jalingo, the leader of the dreaded group had said the remaining students will be killed today unless a ransom is paid.
He issued the threat on Monday while speaking with the Hausa Service of the Voice of America
He insisted that if the money (N100m) and the items (motorcycles) demanded were not provided today, trucks would be used to evacuate the lifeless bodies of the remaining students.
However, 5 of the students have been killed by the kidnappers.
Nigerians have these to say on Twitter:
We created this monster currently, paying kidnappers and pampering repentant terrorists. Now some students of #Greenfielduniversity may pay for the government’s inability to protect them with their lives.
This is no longer acceptable, it’s becoming a norm and has to stop

They did no harm.
They hurt nobody.
They deserve their freedom, Western Education can never be Haram. The FG must intervene to rescue #Greenfielduniversity students ASAP.
