- This follows the threat by the criminals to waste the innocent children

A special supplication has been sent to the criminals that kidnapped students of Greenfield University, Kaduna state.
The Parents Teachers’ Association pleaded with bandits to spare the lives of the remaining 17 students, Punch reports.
Recall that the criminals had threatened to kill the remaining 17 students after having mercilessly terminated the lives of five of them.
The National President of the association, Haruna Danjuma, who made the supplication urged the bandits to spare the lives of the innocent students.
“We were shocked and unhappy with the bandits’ threat on the radio that all our remaining Greenfield University students will be killed if N100 million and ten motorcycles were not given to them (bandits) today (Tuesday)."
Meanwhile, an Islamic cleric, Sheik Ahmad Gumi, on Tuesday, May 4 urged the Central Bank of Nigeria to pay the N100million ransom being demanded by the kidnappers of Greenfield University students in Kaduna state.
Gumi who has been at the forefront of championing amnesty for the terrorists said the federal government must not take the threat by the kidnappers lightly.
Gumi was reacting to the comments of a parent of one of the abductees who lamented that the kidnappers were insisting on a ransom of N100million before their wards are safely released to them.
