Gunmen who kidnapped students of Greenfield University have shot dead three of the abducted students.
It is recalled that the armed bandits on Tuesday night kidnapped some students at the institution located at Kasarami village off Kaduna-Abuja Road in Chikun Local Government Area.
A statement issued by the Kaduna State Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, on Friday, said the bodies of three students were found on Friday in Kwanan Bature village, a location close to the university.
According to the statement: “The remains of the three students have been evacuated to a mortuary by the Commissioner, Internal Security and Home Affairs and Force Commander, Operation Thunder Strike, Lieutenant Colonel M.H. Abdullahi.
“Governor Nasir el-Rufai has also described the killing of three students as sheer wickedness, inhumanity and an outright desecration of human lives by vile entities.
“According to the governor, evil 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 students’ families and the university community, as he prayed for the repose of their souls.”
