The Kaduna State Government said three of the Greenfield University students kidnapped by bandits have been found dead.

Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs in Kaduna State, Samuel Aruwan, disclosed in a statement on Friday.

Aruwan said: “In an act of mindless evil and sheer wickedness, the armed bandits who kidnapped students of Greenfield University, have shot dead three of the abducted students.

“The remains of three students were found today (Friday), in Kwanan Bature village, a location close to the university, and have been evacuated to a mortuary by the Commissioner, Internal Security, and Home Affairs, and Force Commander, Operation Thunder Strike, Lt. Col. MH Abdullahi.”

Kaduna State has a policy of not paying ransom to kidnappers as the governor, Nasir El-Rufai, says it encourages more kidnappings.

The statement reads in full: “In an act of mindless evil and sheer wickedness, the armed bandits who kidnapped students of Greenfield University, have shot dead three of the abducted students.

“The armed bandits on Tuesday night kidnapped an unspecified number of students at the institution located at Kasarami village off Kaduna-Abuja Road in Chikun LGA.

“The remains of three students were found today (Friday), in Kwanan Bature village, a location close to the university, and have been evacuated to a mortuary by the Commissioner, Internal Security, and Home Affairs, and Force Commander, Operation Thunder Strike, Lt. Col. MH Abdullahi.

“Governor Nasir El-Rufai has condemned the killing of three students as sheer wickedness, inhumanity, and an outright desecration of human lives by vile entities. He went on to say that the armed bandits represent the worst of humankind and must be fought at all cost for the violent wickedness they represent.

“Evil, the Governor further said, would not triumph over God-given humanity. He appealed to citizens to come together against the forces of darkness challenging national security and the very existence of the Nigerian State.

“The Governor, on behalf of the Government and people of Kaduna State sent deep condolences and empathy to the student’s families and the university community, as he prayed for the repose of their souls.

“The Government will keep citizens informed of further developments.”
