Abducted Greenfield Students: Sheik Gumi advises El-Rufai to pay ransom to bandits
Tue, 4 May 2021   ||   Nigeria,

Islamic cleric, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi has urged Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, to pay the ransom demanded by the abductors of the greenfield students for the release of the remaining students in the bandits’ captive.

Sheikh Gumi, during an interview with AIT on Tuesday, wondered why the governor insisted on not paying ransom for the release of the abducted students.  

 He stressed that no money is too big to save the lives of the students.

“We can give them the money to get the boys out of danger then go after our money. Nobody is saying you should not find them, you can get the two back.

“To say you will not negotiate with them and also not take action against them, I cannot understand that,” Gumi stated.

There has been anxiety among Nigerians as the abductors of Greenfield students threatened to kill the remaining on Tuesday if the government fails to meet their demand.

The demand made include N100 million and 10 brand Honda motorcycles.
