President Muhammadu Buhari has condemned the killing of three students of Greenfield University, a Kaduna private institution by kidnappers.
The President in a statement on Saturday described the incident as barbaric terror attacks and promised to use all resources available to deal with the criminals.
It will be recalled that bandits stormed Greenfield University on Wednesday, and kidnapped some students after which the dead bodies of three of the kidnapped students were found days later.
The Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs in Kaduna State, Samuel Aruwan in a statement released on Friday, said the remains of the three students were found at Kwanar Bature village, a location close to the university, on Friday.
Reacting to the killings, President Buhari condoled with the families of those affected and promised that justice will be served in the matter.
He said: “The killing of three of the students kidnapped at Greenfield University, Kaduna, is tragic and condemnable. Three young Nigerians cut down in their prime, by evil people. My thoughts are with their families in this time of grief. May their souls Rest In Peace.
These recurring kidnappings and killings, in Kaduna State in particular, are barbaric terror attacks. We are determined to continue fighting all forms of banditry, kidnapping, and criminality with maximum will and with all the resources available to our country.
Let me add that it is unfortunate the tenor of some political and religious leaders that seem to further incite and stoke the pain and anguish of mourning families who are forced to confront these atrocities.
Addressing this scourge requires a great show of empathy and coming together as a society to squarely confront these elements and the danger they pose to our democracy and peaceful life in the country.
Nigeria will triumph over evil!
Meanwhile, the identities of the three of the abducted students of Greenfield University, Kaduna State, who were killed by the bandits have been revealed.
