Islamic Cleric, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, says negotiation is ongoing for the release of the remaining students of Greenfield University.
The students were abducted on April 20, 2021 and five of them have been killed by their captors.
The leader of the bandits, Sani Jalingo, had also threatened to kill the remaining students if the ransom of N100 million and 10 motorcycles was not provided.

However, Gumi who facilitated the release of the students of students of the College of Forestry and Mechanisation, Afaka, Kaduna, said, “The talk with the Greenfield University students’ abductors is also going on. You know they threatened to kill all of them after a particular deadline but after talking to them, they are now lowering their bar.
“So, we thankful they have stopped killing. And we are still negotiating with them. I hope this Afaka case will also encourage to know that there is hope in negotiation and release the children.”
