The National Parent Teacher Association of Nigeria, NAPTAN, has begged the abductors of the students of Greenfield University, Kaduna State to ease the deadline to allow room for negotiation which will lead to a peaceful resolution.
In an interview with Vanguard on Tuesday, Alhaji Haruna Danjuma, pleaded with the bandits not to allow the skirmish between them and the Kaduna State Government compel them into making indecisive decision.
The President of the National Parent Teacher Association of Nigeria, Danjuma urged the bandits to fear God and spare the lives of the students.

His comment comes after bandits demanded a ransom of N100 million to be paid today, Tuesday or else the remaining students would be killed.
“For me, I think the government should have a rethink about their decision not to dialogue or negotiate with the bandits. My position is based on the fact that entering into dialogue with them may not necessarily mean that government must have to pay them money. It could be an avenue to know their grouse and why they have such grouse with whosoever or whatsoever they have such.
“Assuming that the bandits even want to be paid some money, if the government is not interested in paying any money, let the government allow the parents to raise the money and pay. I heard that the parents had raised and paid the bandits over N50 million though I was not privy to that.
“The government cannot just stay aloof and not do anything. Are the children of government officials among the innocent students being traumatised? The answer may be probably no. I plead with the bandits on behalf of all Nigerian parents to spare the lives of these children. They should not allow their faceoff with the government to push them to do evil. None of the children of the governor is among the victims.
“The bandits should also fear God and spare these children. The shedding of innocent blood should stop. We cannot continue this way. We are not only killing education in the country, we are hurting and putting the future of Nigeria in jeopardy, ”
Meanwhile, the bandits have already killed 5 of the students who were kidnapped on April 20 together with a staff member of Greenfield University, Kaduna State.
The leader of the gang has issued a stern warning to execute the remaining 17 students unless they pay the N100 million ransom and deliver 10 brand new motorcycles by the close of Tuesday, May 4.
