President Buhari has appealed for the release of abducted students of Greenfield University Kaduna.
Recall that more than 20 students of Greenfield university were abducted by bandints in April 18 and five of the students have already been killed.
In a statement released on Wednesday, May 5, President Buhari appealed for the release of the Greenfield students after 27 students of the Federal College of Forestry Mechanization in Kaduna state were released by bandits.
He also appreciated the defense and security agencies who contributed to the release of the forestry students, while condemning “increasing politicization of security in Nigeria.”
”I welcome the release of the 27 students of the Federal College of Forestry Mechanization, Afaka, and congratulate their friends, families, and the government and people of Kaduna State. We are happy they have been released.
Our deep appreciation to all who contributed one way or the other to this happy outcome, in particular the defence and security agencies, the officials of the Ministry of Environment, and the Government of Kaduna State. We equally thank Nigerians for their prayers.
I again appeal for the release of the students of Greenfield University & all other citizens held in captivity. We will leave no stone unturned in ensuring that Nigerians live in a country where everyone can move where and when they want—without the fear of kidnapping & banditry.
I call for steadfastness & security awareness on the part of the law enforcement agencies, and citizens. Let me once again condemn the increasing politicization of security in Nigeria, by opportunistic politicians. All hands must be on deck to achieve enduring peace & security.” the statement read
