Bandits release one of the abducted Greenfield varsity student

One of the 17 Greenfield University students remaining in the custody of the bandits has been released on Tuesday, 4th of May, 2021.

Although the mother of the freed student, Mrs. Lauritta Attahiru refused to give more information, saying “I can’t talk right now” when she was contacted by The Nation, she had previously confirmed her son’s release on Channels Television.

According to The Nation newspaper, a ransom of N20 million was paid for the student’s release but the police and Kaduna state government were yet to confirm the development.

Some of the parents, when contacted, also confirmed the bandits had earlier negotiated with them individually, asking each of them to pay as high as N20 million before they eventually demanded a bulk of N100 million and ten motorcycles on Monday, 3rd of May, 2021 and the student was released after his mother, who is the wife of a retired Army officer, negotiated and paid ransom to the bandits privately.
