Jalingo’s bandits have earlier killed 5 out of the kidnapped 23 students including a staff of the privately-owned university, who were abducted from the school on April 20, 2021, at their campus along the Kaduna-Abuja Highway.
He insisted that if the money (N100m) and the items (motorcycles) demanded were not provided on Tuesday, trucks would be used to evacuate the lifeless bodies of the remaining students.
He said 17 of the abducted students, including 15 females and two males are in their custody.
Jalingo disclosed that the families of the remaining students had so far paid N55 million to them.
Following the kidnap of the students and a staff of the school, the bandits had made contact with the parents and demanded N800 million ransom for the release of the students.
