Greenfield: Dorathy Yohanna, University Student Killed By Kidnappers In Kaduna…

Newsonspot.com.ng reports that the family of Dorathy Yohanna, one of three students of Greenfield University, Kaduna who were found dead following an attack by gunmen, has called for action from the government.

The varsity located in Chikun Local Government Area was attacked on April 20 while several students were taken hostage.

The school was attacked five days after Ms Yohanna celebrated her birthday.

Her brother-in-law simply identified on Twitter as Yamai filed a complaint to the Presidency through presidential aide Tolu Ogunlesi.
“Hi @toluogunlesi, my sister-in-law was among the 3 dead students found today from Greenfield University. We are all trying to unpack our feelings. People’s children have become sports for bandits & kidnappers. I know you get a lot of stick on here,” he wrote on Friday.

“And I know you get; people are angry. I’m very angry right now because there’s just so much I don’t understand anymore. What’s the purpose of life as a Nigerian? What’s the sole responsibility of a government for/to the people?

“I’m marginalised as a Christian in my state. I go elsewhere and I’m being stereotyped. Today, my sister is dead. I can not, for the life of me, imagine what she went thru in the hands of these evil men before her untimely death. Can you? How do I comfort my wife?”

Yamai said his mother-in-law has been unable to eat or bath for three days since her daughter was abducted and later killed.

“How can a mother bury her child? What’s the purpose of thoughts and prayers? Do we deserve to live and die like this in our own country? Do you understand why some of us choose to be “slaves” elsewhere than “kings” at home?”

“The pain is unbearable. Everyone deserves the benefit of doubt, but do you think this government still deserves any? I need answers. They still have about twenty more kids with some to be killed tomorrow if they don’t get what they asked for.

“Where do we go from here Tolu? Do we worry about tomorrow? Do we believe in a fair, just and righteous God? My mother-in-law hasn’t eaten or showered in 3 days since her daughter, whom she saw on Monday, got kidnapped & this death was the answer to her prayers“ he wrote.

“You’re not the president, I know, but please talk to your boss. The evil we do or our negligence surely does come around one way or the other. That’s the circle of life. Do something!! Bless you!!”

Ogunlesi replied saying: “I’m so sorry to hear this Yamai. My deepest condolences!”

The deceased’s sister Sim Yohanna also tweeted about the incident. She said: “Seeing my sister’s lifeless body all over the media breaks my heart. I am SHATTERED.”

Newsonspot.com.ng recalls the abductors of the students had demanded N800 million as ransom for the students’ release.

The north has been ravaged by banditry and insurgency, with Kaduna becoming a hotbed for attacks on students.
