Kidnapped UNIABUJA Profs, Others Regain Freedom


Six staff of the University of Abuja (UNIABUJA) abducted by gunmen on Tuesday have reportedly been rescued by the police and they have been reunited with their families.

The Federal Capital Police Command spokesperson, Josephine Adeh, confirmed the development in a statement this morning, though details of the rescue operation were sketchy.

VANTAGE NEWS had reported that two professors, a non-academic staff, and three others were abducted from their official quarters.

The criminals numbering over 20 were said to have shot their way into the compound and whisked away their victims.

Twenty-four hours later, they demanded N300 million ransom.

It could not be confirmed whether ransom was paid before the victims were reportedly rescued by the police.
