June 18, 2023

Six of the seven students of the University of Jos kidnapped by gunmen have regained freedom after two days.

Our correspondent gathered that the incident happened when the students, who reside at a private hostel close to the former Nigerian School of Accountancy along Bauchi Ring Road in Jos North local government, were studying for their ongoing second-semester examination.

The state commissioner of police who disclosed the release in a statement said the police had intensified efforts to rescue the last victim.

“The Plateau State command is pleased to announce to the general public that five of the victims who were kidnapped on 13/06/2023 have regained their freedom.

“The command swung into action immediately after receiving the report and worked tirelessly in collaboration with the anti-kidnaping unit, family members of the victims and the community to secure the release of the victims.

“One of the victims was able to escape from the kidnappers’ den, while one victim is still in captivity. This brings the number of rescued victims to six.

“However, the Commissioner of Police Bartholomew N. Onyeka has given a matching order to the Area Commander Metro and the DPO Nasarawa Gwong to intensify efforts toward ensuring that the last victim is rescued unhurt and the perpetrators of this heinous act are arrested and brought to book.

“The commissioner of police reassures the good people of Plateau State that he is committed to ensuring peace and safety of lives and properties in the state.

“He therefore calls on the residents to be security conscious, report suspicious activities or persons, and provide useful, timely, and accurate information that can help in the fight against crime and criminality in the state,” the statement said.
