Killing of Greenfield students barbaric – NGF

The Northern Governors Forum (NGF) has said it is distressed with the killing of three of the students recently abducted at the Greenfield University, Kaduna stat, by their kidnappers.

Chairman of the forum and governor of Plateau state, Simon Lalong, described the murder of the young innocent students as shocking, barbaric and condemnable.

In a statement by his director of press, Dr Makut Macham, Lalong said the killings were unjustifiable.

Lalong said: “There is no justification for the kidnap and murder of the innocent students who were in school to study and prepare themselves for service to the nation.”

Lalong said the action is an act of sheer wickedness that must not be allowed to go unpunished.

He said the northern governors have continued to engage the federal government and security agencies towards a lasting solution to the menace of kidnapping and other criminal activities, particularly in schools, which has great implications for the future of education in the region and the nation at large.

Lalong said: “The recent meeting of the forum with President Muhammadu Buhari and service chiefs was to further consolidate on measures towards addressing the security challenges of the region and the nation as a whole.”
