Kogi Deploys Security Operatives, Hunters To Rescue Abducted Students

The Kogi State government has deployed security operatives and hunters into the bush on the trail of bandits that invaded and abducted university students on Thursday night.

The abductors had invaded the Confluence University of Science and Technology (CUSTEC), Osara, Okene, trapping some students in their classes.

Nine students were reported missing after the invasion.

The commissioner for information, Kingsley Fanwo, in a press statement yesterday said there were ongoing efforts to rescue the abducted students.

“Hundreds of local hunters who understand the terrain as well as conventional security agents are currently combing the area to ensure the safe rescue of the abducted students who were kidnapped from their classrooms. 

We hope to rescue them as soon as possible,” he said.
