Atiku Abubakar

Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has condemned the killing of three of the students abducted from Greenfield University in Kaduna State.

Naija News reports that three of the students abducted from the university on Tuesday night have been murdered by their captors.

In a statement on Friday, Kaduna State Commissioner of Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, said the remains of the three students were found at Kwanar Bature village, a location close to the university, on Friday.

He added that Governor Nasir El-Rufai has condemned the killing of three students as sheer wickedness, inhumanity, and an outright desecration of human lives by vile entities.

Aruwan said the governor, on behalf of the Government and the people of Kaduna state, sent deep condolences and empathy to the families of the students and the university community, as he prayed for the repose of their souls.

The commissioner added that the state government will keep citizens informed of further developments.

But in a tweet via his Twitter handle on Friday, Atiku described the killing of the abducted students of Greenfield University, Kaduna as heartbreaking.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain prayed that God should comfort the families and friends of the victims.

He, however, asked the federal government to grant states constitutional roles in the management of security.

He wrote: “Heartbreaking to learn of the killing of 3 of the abducted students of Greenfield University, Kaduna. How long shall we continue to lose precious souls? May their families and friends be comforted. It is time states are granted constitutional roles in the management of security.”
