Three of the 21 abducted students of Greenfield University, Kaduna State, have been found dead.

The Kaduna State Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, who announced the development, said bodies of the students were found in Kwanan Bature village near the university.

The 21 undergraduates were abducted on Tuesday night at the university premises and the abductors have demanded for the sum of N800 million.

The remains of three students were discovered on Friday in Kwanan Bature village, a place close to the university, and were evacuated to a mortuary by him and the Force Commander, Operation Thunder Strike, Lieutenant Colonel MH Abdullahi.

Armed bandits abducted an unknown number of students from the institution in Kasarami village, off the Kaduna-Abuja Road in Kaduna state’s Chikun local government area, on Tuesday night.

Meanwhile, Governor Nasir El-Rufai has described the three students’ deaths as “pure wickedness,” “inhumanity,” and “outright desecration of human lives by vile powers.”

He said that armed bandits embodied the worst of humanity and that they must be fought at all costs because of their violent wickedness.

The governor went on to say that evil does not prevail over God’s gift of humanity. He urged people to band together against the forces of darkness threatening national security and the Nigerian state’s very life.

El-Rufai expressed deep condolences and empathy to the student’s families and the university community on behalf of the Kaduna State government and citizens and prayed for the repose of their souls.
