Abducted Agric Varsity Students In Benue Regain Freedom





The students of the Federal University of Agriculture, Makurdi, Benue State who were kidnapped last Saturday have been released.

Glamtush reports that their release comes four days after gunmen stormed the school after its convocation and kidnapped three students.

A terse statement by the Director, Information, Protocol and Public Relations of the University, Mrs. Rosemary Waku, revealed that the students were returned to campus on Tuesday.

She identified the released students as Israel Farren Kwaghgee and Solomon Salihu.

She, however, did not say if a ransom was paid before the students were released.

Also, confirming their release via a text message on Wednesday, Police Public Relations Officer in the state, DSP Sewuese Anene, said the students were rescued unhurt.

“The kidnapped students of the University of Makurdi have been released unhurt. Investigation into the case continues please,” he said.
