Abductors Of Two Taraba Varsity Students Demand N50m Ransom

The kidnappers of two students of the Federal University Wukari in Taraba State are demanding a ransom of N50m in exchange for the freedom of the students.

The Head of Information and Protocol Unit of the institution, Mrs. Ashu Agbu, disclosed this in a telephone conversation with journalists on Sunday.

“The abductors revealed that they came for the owner of the eatery and not his staff and will return to get him.

“They are demanding a ransom of N50m to free the two students. Since the incident, security agencies and youths of the area are combing the surrounding forests and bush paths to apprehend the kidnappers and will not relent until the students are rescued alive and safe,” she said.

Agbu hinted that an expanded meeting will be held on Monday, 8th of April with security agencies, and local, state, and Federal Government representatives, to find a lasting solution to the insecurity affecting the institution.

It was gathered that about 90 percent of the students and staff of the institution live outside the school premises.

The students were picked on Wednesday, 3rd of April at about 10pm at a shop close to the busy area, accommodating students staying outside the school premises.
