Senator Sani made the call in response to the Friday assassination of three abducted students from Greenfield University in Kaduna by their abductors.
In the early hours of Friday, Kaduna State Commissioner of Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, announced the recovery of the students’ bodies, claiming they were shot dead by bandits.
Abubakar Yusuf Sanga, Precious Nwakacha, and Dorathy Tirnom Yohanna were the teachers.
Senator Sani described the killing of the students as tragic on his verified Twitter account, claiming that Kaduna is under siege by bandits.
He did, however, advise school owners on Kaduna’s outskirts to close their doors, stating that the tragedies of the College of Forestry and now Greenfield University must not be repeated.
“It is sad to hear that three of the students of Kaduna Greenfield University were murdered by the bandits who abducted them,” he said. Can their souls find eternal peace. Let us pray for the safety of the two nurses kidnapped at Kajuru Hospital.
“The owners of schools on the outskirts of Kaduna that are still in operation should do the necessary and not depend on chance.
“The tragedies that have befallen the College of Forestry and now Greenfield University must not be allowed to continue. We are under siege by bandits; life comes first, then education,” Senator Shehu Sani said.
