‘We’ve rescued UNIABUJA professors, others from kidnappers’ — police

Share This

The police say they have rescued the six staff of the University of Abuja (UNIABUJA) abducted by gunmen on Tuesday and reunited them with their families.

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

Two professors, a non-academic staff, and three others were abducted from their official quarters.

Hoodlums 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. But the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), yesterday, gave the federal government 48 hours to rescue the captives.

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

However, Adeh in her statement said, “The FCT Police Command wishes to inform members of the public that all abducted victims of the University of Abuja were rescued and reunited with their families through a joint operation with other security agencies. More details coming soon.”
