Abducted Greenfield University Students Shot Dead
iexclusive News Nigeria reports that three abducted Greenfield University students found dead
The three Greenfield University students in Kaduna State who were abducted by bandits suspected to be kidnappers have been killed by their abductors.
They were abducted by bandits from the private university located along the Kaduna- Abuja highway on Tuesday night.
The Kaduna State Commissioner for internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, confirmed this.
He said the remains of the three students were found on Friday in Kwanan Bature village, a location close to the university.
Their bodies have been evacuated to a mortuary by himself and the Force Commander, Operation Thunder Strike, Lieutenant Colonel MH Abdullahi.
The armed bandits on Tuesday night kidnapped an unspecified number of students at the institution located at Kasarami village off Kaduna-Abuja Road in Chikun local government area of Kaduna State.
Some eyewitnesses that was spoken to said the gunmen stormed the university and started shooting sporadically, before taking some of the students away.
The locals said that the university with about forty students population does not have enough security on the ground, despite being located in one of the epicenters of kidnapping, a situation which they believe made it easier for the bandits to gain easy access into the institution.
In recent times, Kaduna has been facing series of attacks by bandits including assaults on schools.
