Kaduna: Gunmen attack Green Field university, abduct students

The police command in Ekiti on Friday confirmed the killing of a police officer as gunmen allegedly abducted a Chinese expatriate in Ado Ekiti, the Ekiti State capital.

An unidentified number of students of Green Field University located along the Abuja-Kaduna highway have been abducted when armed men attacked the school.

It was gathered that the armed men, who attacked the school around 10.30 pm on Tuesday, shot a security guard.

Details of the attack are, however, sketchy as the police are yet to make confirmation.

Newsmen reached out to the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, ASP Muhammad Jalige, but he is yet to respond.

Newsmen report that the school abduction is coming barely 40 days after 39 students of the Federal College of Forestry Mechanisation, Mando were kidnapped.

It was earlier reported how the arrival of female soldiers drafted to the Abuja-Kaduna highway in December 2020 had brought sanity to the road.
