Nigerians have taken to Twitter to demand the swift intervention of the government to see to the release of the remaining Greenfield University students as the abductors threatened to kill them today.

Twenty-two undergraduates were seized from their campus almost two weeks ago by gunmen. Five of them have since been killed by the captors.

In an interview with the Voice Of America (VOA) Hausa, leader of the team, Sani Idris Jalingo (also known as Baleri), handed down the threat in a recorded audio clip that lasted for three minutes.

He explained that affected parents had paid N55 million which they allegedly used in feeding the captives.

“There are 15 females and two males in our captivity, including the son of the late Emir, Shehu Idris, identified as Hamza,” Jalingo said

“We have heard the governor ranting that he would not pay a kobo as ransom to any bandit or kidnapper.

“He even warned his family members that should anyone of them be kidnapped, he wouldn’t pay a kobo to free them.”

The ringleader said they eliminated the five students to show seriousness and the government’s failure to pay the N100 million ransom might lead to the death of the remaining students.

“Now, we want them to pay the N100 million ransom. Failure to meet up with our demand by Tuesday (today), then the parents will pack their (students) bodies in pickups,” he added.

Nigerians on Twitter are demanding the release of the remaining students.

The kidnappers of the #Greenfielduniversity have killed 5 students and still plan to kill more if the govt doesn’t meet their demands!!

Here in Nigeria, 17 young men and women, might be executed any second now by a group the government has refused to call by it’s rightful label – Terrorists. If these Nigerians are k!lled in cold-blood again, what would be their crime? #Greenfielduniversity

When I remember the students killed at #Greenfielduniversity and those still in danger, I can’t help thinking that some people somewhere are collecting salaries and allowances for securing citizens and there’s this much insecurity

The #Greenfielduniversity students need to be alive to benefit from these “government initiatives”.

Or are these initiatives for the Elrufais, Osibanjos and Buharis?

When they started pampering “repentant bandits” I cried out.

Repentance is unto God not man.

Then they started paying bandits..

Now it has become a lucrative business for trigger happy fellows and enemies of our collective patrimony.#Greenfielduniversity is priority..

Bandits Have Threatened To Kill More Abducted #Greenfielduniversity Students Today. Sheikh Gumi Spokesperson For These Deadly Bandits Should Be Arrested. He Knows The Hideouts Of These Bandits. And The Culpable Negligence Of The Federal Government Is Very Alarming. Failed State!

Bastardized DSS that should have gathered enough Intel to nail the abductors of Greenfield University students is busy threatening government critics.

Such a noble organization sacrificed on the alter of mediocre Politics. E no go better for una. #Greenfielduniversity
