Abducted Taraba varsity students regain freedom

Two students of the Federal University Wukari kidnapped two weeks ago have regained their freedom.

The Head, Information and Protocol Unit of the institution, Mrs Ashu Agbu, disclosed this while speaking on Friday.

“The two students of the Federal University Wukari who were kidnapped regained their freedom last night after spending days in the hands of their abductors,’ she said.

She, however, did not provide details on how the students were released.

But last week, the abductors demanded N50m ransom.

The two students were abducted on Wednesday, April 3 at about 10:pm at a shop close to the school.

The students, Joshua Sardauna from the Economics Department and Obianu Elizabeth of the Microbiology Department returned to the school to re-sit their examinations as a result of the carry-over they had last session when the incident happened.

Reports had it that gunmen suspected to be herdsmen on Monday, April 3, 2024, invaded the Federal University Wukari in Taraba State and abducted two students.

The Chief Security Officer of the university, Mr Sule Gani, confirmed the incident in a telephone interview with journalists in Jalingo.

Gani said a male and a female ex-students of the university who came to write their carry-over papers were abducted by the gunmen he described as armed Fulani herdsmen.

According to him, the herdsmen invaded the school and abducted two students who were eating at a food vendor shop on campus.
