Do not kill Greenfield University students, PTA begs abductors

Gunmen who abducted students from Greenfield University, Kaduna have been begged by the National Parents Teachers Association (NPTA) to spare the lives of their victims.

Recall that gunmen had invaded Greenfield University in April, kidnapped some students of the institution and five of the kidnapped students have been killed.

WITHIN NIGERIA had earlier reported that the abductors had threatened to kill the remaining victims if a ransom of N100 million wasn’t paid by Tuesday.

Speaking with journalists on Tuesday in Kaduna, NPTA President identified Haruna Danjuma urged the abductors to reconsider their stand.

“We were shocked with that statement on the radio (VOA) that all the remaining students of Greenfield University would be killed if N100 million and 10 motorcycles were not given to them today (Tuesday),” Danjuma said.

“We are simply begging them not to kill any other student in view of the fact that they are innocent.

“The deadline is really worrisome and we as parents, are concerned and worried over the lives of our students and teachers of the university.”

He also appealed to the government to do more to address insecurity.

“Since the kidnap of Chibok girls, to Dapchi, Zamfara, Niger, and Kaduna, many teachers and students are in a panic mood, hence the need for the government to quickly bring an end to the kidnapping of students and teachers,” he said.
