Recall that Legit.ng had reported that the bandits behind the abduction of some students of Greenfield University, a Kaduna-based private-owned institution, have reportedly contacted their parents and demanded a collective ransom of N800 million.

The bandits threatened to kill the students if the ransom is not paid, noting that negotiation of the ransom was already ongoing.

A cousin to one of the kidnapped students, Georgina Stephen, confirmed the development. According to her, the kidnappers have been beating the abducted students, insisting if the ransom is not paid they will kill all of them.

The gunmen abducted the students during an attack on the private university on the night of Tuesday, April 20.

The academic institution is located along the Kaduna–Abuka highway in Chikun local government area of the state.
