Kidnappers of students of Greenfield University, Kaduna State have reduced the ransom on the remaining 17 students in their custody to N100 million.
But they threatened to kill all the students in captivity if N100million is not paid on Tuesday.
Leader of the gang, who identified himself as Sani Idris Jalingo, in an interview with Voice of America (VOA) Hausa on Monday, also demanded 10 Honda brand motorcycles, popularly known as Boko Haram.
It was earlier reported that 22 students and matron of the female hostel were abducted from the university’s premises at Kasarami Chikun Local Government Area along Kaduna-Abuja Express way on April 20, 2021.
The bandits, who initially contacted the distressed parents and demanded N800 million ransom, later killed five of the students for failure of the parents and the university management to respond.
In the VOA interview monitored by The Nation in Kaduna on Monday, Jalingo explained they killed the five students over failure of government.
He threatened if the N100 million and 10 motorcycles are not delivered by Kaduna Government or parents by Tuesday the remaining students would be killed.
The bandit leader confirmed there were 17 students in their custody, comprising 15 females and two males, one of whom the VOA reported is a grandchild of the late 18th Emir of Zazzau, Alhaji Shehu Idris.
