Bandits strike again, abduct students of Green Field University, along Abuja-Kaduna highway

Bandits struck again in Kaduna State, abducting an unidentified number of students of Green Field University, a private university located along the Abuja-Kaduna highway.

Sources said that the bandits invaded and attacked the school around 10:30 pm on Tuesday, after shooting a security guard.

Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Muhammad Jalige, who confirmed the incident, said the exact number of abducted students is yet to be known.

He said a row call was being taken to ascertain the identities and number of students who are missing.

Jalige noted that the Police and the military moved to the school immediately they got wind of the attack.

He said the Police would update the public on the number of students abducted as soon as it is confirmed.

The incident comes barely 40 days after 39 students of the Federal College of Forestry Mechanisation, Afaka, Kaduna, were kidnapped. Most of the students are still in the kidnappers den.
