Parents of the abducted Greenfield University students have expressed shock over the latest threat by bandits to kill their children.
They begged the bandits to have mercy and spare their children after payment of N55million ransom.
One of the parents, who spoke to The Nation on condition of anonymity said, they had collectively paid more than the N55million mentioned by the bandits leader as ransom.
The parent said: “We were shocked by the latest threat by the bandits to kill our children. We are not only shocked, we are scared because these people had earlier killed some of the children.
“We were shocked because when we paid them the ransom last week, and mind you, we paid more than the N55 million the bandits claimed to have collected from us, our agreement was that, they were going to release the children.
“We have nothing to say now than to beg the bandits to please spare the lives of our children and release them unconditionally. Because, we don’t have anymore money to give them.
“They should please, keep their promise and release our children,” he said.
Kaduna State Government and the Police Command have remained silent on the development.
Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, did not respond to messages and calls.
Kaduna Police Command’s Public Relations Officer, ASP Mohammed Jalige, promised to get across to our reporter but he was yet to do so as at press time.
