Armed bandits who on Tuesday morning kidnapped students of Greenfield University, have shot dead three of the abducted students.
The three students were among an unspecified number of students kidnapped at the institution located at Kasarami village off Kaduna-Abuja Road in Chikun LGA.
Confirming the incident, Commissioner for internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, said the remains of three students were found on Friday in Kwanan Bature village, a location close to the university and have been evacuated to a mortuary by himself and the Force Commander, Operation Thunder Strike, Lieutenant Colonel MH Abdullahi.
Governor Nasir el-Rufai, who few weeks ago tasked the security agencies to wipe bandits from the country described the killing of the students as sheer barbarity, inhumanity and an outright desecration of human lives by vile entities. He restated his determination to reassure citizens of the state that bandits must be fought at all cost until they are removed from the surface of the state and country.
