‘We’ll shut down Aso Rock if Greenfield students are killed’

Olusegun Bamgbose, Esq., National Coordinator, Concerned Advocates for Good Governance, CAGG, has warned that the Presidential Villa will be on fire should bandits make good their threats to kill the remaining seventeen Greenfield University Students.

The bandits had yesterday declared that the students would be killed on Tuesday if the government refuses to pay them a N100 million ransom.

DAILY POST reports that about 22 students were abducted from their university campus on April 20 when gunmen suspected to be bandits invaded the school premises.

The gunmen within a week, killed five of the victims as the state governor, Nasir Ahmad El-Rufai vowed not to engage in negotiations with any bandit.

Bamgbose told DAILY POST on Tuesday, “This is grievous and gruesome,” talking about the killing of the five students.

“The bandits took advantage of the porous security network and abducted the young and innocent students. They initially demanded N800m to free the abducted students.


“The Federal Government has failed to rescue the students either by use of force or payment of ransom.

”The latest news, however, from the bandits, who have almost taken over power from Buhari, is that today, the remaining students will be slaughtered except the ransom of N100m is paid.


“This is certainly a very precarious situation. The Governor of the State has vowed not to pay any ransom. The Federal Government seem to be helpless and time is ticking.

“Let me, however, personally inform Buhari that Nigerians will never entertain any form of excuses. It’s either the students are rescued or we shall not hesitate to shut down Aso Rock if any of those students are killed.
