Five Abducted as Gunmen Invade Federal University of Agric, Makurdi


Gunmen invaded the campus of the Federal University of Agriculture, Makurdi, over the weekend at night and abducted students, the Police and a source in Benue State have told FIJ.

The Public Relations Officer of the Police in the state, DSP Catherine Anene, told FIJ in a text message that the attack happened at about 10:20pm on April 24 and three students were abducted within the school’s premises.

However, a source who wants to remain anonymous, said five people were kidnapped. He also said the attack occurred on February 25.

“What I gave you is the report I got,” DSP Anene said, reacting to the inconsistencies.

DSP Anene said that the Commissioner of Police had ordered an investigation into the case.

A text message and calls to the school were not answered as of press time.
