Northern groups; Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) and the Coalition of Northern Groups (CNG) have expressed anger over the killing of five students of Greenfield University by bandits.

VANTAGE NEWS reported that two more students of the university were killed by bandits after three were killed last Friday.

Reacting to the latest killing of the abducted students of the university, the National Publicity Secretary of ACF, Emmanuel Yawe, said the situation was the worse form of terrorism that befell the country.

Yawe also wondered how Buhari and El-Rufai feel about the ugly development.

He said, “This is the worst form of terrorism and barbarism ever visited on Nigeria. How much was used to set up the university that the terrorists are demanding N800m as ransom? The people committing these heinous crimes are they Northerners, are they Nigerians?

“What are the federal and state governments doing to stop this human waste? Our members want to know how el Rufai the Governor of Kaduna and Muahammadu Bihari feel about these tragic turn of events. The ACF feels and shares the pains of Nigerians in these tragic developments.”

The CNG on its part said the group was already planning to demonstrate against the state government’s resolve not to negotiate with the kidnappers.

According to the group’s spokesman who spoke to The Punch, its a liability to have a leader like El-Rufai who cannot be advised or criticised.

“We find the killing of two more students of Greenfield University quite regrettable but avoidable if we have a listening government. Unfortunately, we have a government in place that has stubbornly refused to heed genuine advice on its handling of the deteriorating security situation in Kaduna state.

“We have all along pointed out that leaders, such as the ones we have Kaduna, who would not be advised or criticized are certainly a liability,” he said.
