The six persons abducted from Nigeria’s University of Abuja (UNIABUJA) in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) have regained freedom.
In a statement on Friday, the spokesperson for the FCT Police Command, Josephine Adeh, confirmed that the victims were rescued by a joint team of operatives from various security agencies.
She 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,”
Those abducted included two professors, a senior lecturer, and three of their family members.
Chairman of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), UNIABUJA Chapter, Dr Kasim Umar, who also confirmed that the victims have been rescued, stated that no ransom was paid.
Recall that an unspecified number of gunmen stormed the staff quarters of the University on Tuesday, abducting six persons. Among them were two Professors, a Deputy Registrar and three family members.
The invaders were said to have forced their way into the houses of the victims through the windows, before abducting them.
In one of the houses seen during a visit to the scene, the ceiling and windows were broken while books, clothes, and other wares were littered on the floor.
