Two weeks after the abduction of students from Greenfield University, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, has shared an update concerning the release of those still in captivity.
The Nation reports that the prominent Islamic cleric said the remaining 16 kidnapped students would be freed soon.
Recall that the bandits who abducted some students from a private university in Kaduna threatened to kill the remaining 17 in their custody if their demands are not met.
The criminals are asking for a ransom of N100 million as well as 10 brand Honda motorcycles.
Sheikh Gumi says the remaining kidnapped students will soon regain their freedom from their captors.
Gumi made this known to newsmen on Thursday, May 5, at his Kaduna residence after receiving parents of freed students of Federal College of Forestry, Afaka who paid him a ‘thank you visit’.
While assuring that negotiations were ongoing with the bandits, the cleric confirmed that none of the students had been killed following their last thread.
The cleric went on to note that though the ransom of N100 million has not yet been paid, the bandits, however, reduced their initial demand, The Punch reports.
