About two weeks ago, armed gunmen kidnapped about 23 students from Greenfield University, Kaduna State. The kidnappers demanded for N800 million initially and threatened to kill the students if their demands are not met. The government failed to pay the ransom and the abductors killed five students in the space of one week. This plunged the families of the deceased students into mourning and they lamented on the poor state of security in the country.
Hours ago, the bandits gave the government a one-day ultimatum to pay the ransom or expect the death of the remaining students. Many Nigerians have reacted to this threat and the parents of the kidnapped students organized a peaceful protest, for the government to release their children. A popular Islamic cleric, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi has revealed that the true identity of the kidnappers.
In a video posted on Instagram by LindaIkejiBlog, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi revealed that the kidnappers are Boko Haram and not bandits like Nigerians think. He disclosed in an interview with African Independent Television (AIT) that he tried reaching out to the abductors, but they were adamant and threatened to kidnap the person who was sent to discuss with them. He lamented that the government has refused to support him and they need to act fast to prevent the death of the remaining students.
Governor Nasir El-Rufai has on several occasions, said that his government will never negotiate with criminals, who he believes do not deserve to exist. But, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi lamented that five students have already been killed and yet Nasir El-Rufai still maintains his stance. Sheikh Gumi said that no amount of money is equivalent to the life of one human being, not to talk of several students still in captivity.
He suggested that the government should pay the ransom and deploy the military to the abductors’ hideout, so as to retrieve the money which was paid as ransom. This could be a smart strategy if the government hearkens to his advice.
