Buhari Appeals For Release Of Greenfield University Students

President Muhammadu Buhari has welcomed the release of 27 students of the Federal College of Forestry Mechanization, Afaka, Kaduna State.

The students were released Thursday, over one month after they were abducted. There were released following negotiations with the kidnappers by government officials and families of the victims. The details of the negotiations were not made public.

According to a statement by his spokesperson, Garba Shehu, Mr. Buhari also “appeals for the release of the students of the Greenfield University and all other citizens held in captivity.”

About 16 Greenfield University students are still being held by kidnappers in Kaduna State. The undergraduates were kidnapped last month and five of those kidnapped have already been killed by their abductors.

Kidnapping for ransom has become rampant in Kaduna and many other states in Nigeria.
