    Following threats by abductors of the Greenfield University students to kill the remaining 17 students, if ransom is not paid immediately, Senator Shehu Sani on Tuesday urged the government to immediately rescue them.

    In a statement he made available to Muhabarishaji in Abuja, the ex-lawmaker, who represented Kaduna Central Senatorial district, lamented that the situation has reached a condemnable level that governments can’t rescue its citizens.

    He said: “The abduction of Students of the Greenfield University that follows the kidnapping of the students of the Federal College of Forestry Mechanization is a condemnable and dangerous dimension to the apparent paralysis of security in Kaduna State and the North West.

    He added that Nigerians must not live to see corpse of the abducted students dumped on the corridors to be picked for burial, given that abductors have been very brutal.

    “The Federal and Kaduna State Governments must not take lightly the threats by the bandits to callously harm these helpless students on the expiration of their dateline.

    Shehu Sani condemned Kaduna State government for ruling out ransom option, but did nothing to rescue the abductees.

    “If the payment of ransom is not the solution why has our security forces still unable to detect the whereabouts of the students and free them for this long. Doing nothing is dangerous.

    “When you have a helpless people and a helpless Government then the nation is hopeless.

    “Our tears will be needless for a tragedy we could have avoided.

    “We must not wait for Bandits to throw the corpses of our 17 children on our doorsteps.

    “We cannot claim to be fasting in a Holy month and helplessly watch the slaughter of our Children.

    “If the Government has a better solution to freeing the kidnapped students other than the one embarked upon by the parents of the students, let it be put to work immediately.

    “Kidnappers are holding the Balls of the Government and the groins of our country, getting out of it, by all means, is what matters.

    “The clock ticks for the lives of the students and for the honor of the Government.

    “If we fail to provide for the new generation, we must not fail to protect them.

    “We have become a country in perpetual state of funerals and mourning. In the North these days, our nights are darkness tragedies, our mornings are daylights of sorrows,” the statement concluded.
