Tears and weeping trailed the funeral service in honour of Miss Dorothy Tirnom Yohanna, one of the murdered five students of Greenfield University, Kaduna, held at ECWA Goodnews Church, Narayi Highcost in Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State, as she was described as s child whose ambition was to help in making the country safer, better and greater.
Speaking at the event, Pastor of her church, Dr. (Rev) David Gyet urged children to extol her virtue as he described her as humble, patient and obedient in her service to God and humanity.
“I sympathise with the families of the kidnapped students and those that have been killed. God will continue to avenge for his children.”
According to him, “insecurity in the country goes to show the insincerity and heartlessness of government to the plight of the masses.”
Father of the late student, Arch. Yohanna Meck, while believing that God is aware of his misfortune, wants government to be proactive in its drive of finding a lasting solution to the problems of insecurity bedevilling the country.
“As it is today, our country is facing serious security challenges, the country presently has a government that needs to be efficient and proactive in its fight against banditry, kidnapping and terrorism.”
A 200 levels student of the institution and one of the students who managed to escape, Jesse Jakiri, described the act as traumatic and unforgettable.
According to him,”it’s still like a dream, we heard gun shots and ran into hiding. They took 13 female and 6 male students.”
“Now they have killed 5 of them, government should please help to release them from the hands of this kidnappers.”
It would be recalled that last week 19 students of Greenfield university, Kaduna were kidnapped with the bandits asking for a ransom of 800 hundred million to be paid by government failure meaning the killing of two students every two days. So far, five students have been killed.
