How bandits kidnapped Kogi varsity students

The eyewitness said the bandits entered the university through the bush, went straight into the lecture hall where the students were reading and began to spot sporadically.

Here is the eyewitness’ comment:

“They trapped the students inside the halls and started taking them; the school was thrown into total confusion as fear-stricken students in other halls scurried to safety, scampering in various directions.

“By the time local security guards and the conventional security men at the gate engaged the bandits, they had already succeeded in abducting some students. But the efforts minimised the damage as the attackers didn’t go beyond the first three halls.”

He said:

“We only ventured out when everywhere became quiet.”

The vice chancellor of the university, Prof. Abdulraman Asipita, has confirmed the attack but did not give details of the number of students abducted.
