The parents of the remaining 20 abducted Students of Greenfield University, in Kaduna State, have cried out in tears to the President Muhammadu Buhari Federal Government for urgent assistance in rescuing their children from the hands of the killer Fulani bandits,
The parents who met on Friday, for a prayer session in Kaduna, decried the continued stay of their children in the custody of the bandits, since they were abducted from the School, on April 20.
The Chairman of the aggrieved parents, Marcus Zarmai, urged President Buhari to use his Office to secure the release of the Students, before something more tragic happens to them.
According to him, the bandits are demanding the sum of N100 million, even after they have collectively paid them over N60 million ransom for the release of their children, without any success.
The parents, in tears, appealed to the Federal Government to assist them to pay the ransom demanded, or find any other way to ensure the safe return of their children.
Among those kidnapped by the bandits is a woman whose daughter, Esther Chukwuemeka, joined in praying for the release of the abducted persons.
Esther decried that her mother’s absence has created a vacuum in their family, and appealed to the bandits to release her mother.
Recall, that the Governor of the State, Nasir El-Rufai, has on many occasions in recent times reiterated that his government will never negotiate or pay ransom to the killer bandits, no matter who is involved.
