On their return kidnappers were nabbed, their car was also set ablaze.
Mercy, another female student of the school said,
“Two girls got an invitation to go out, from a hostel member, who is not a student, but was impersonating just to get girls kidnapped from the school”.
Mr Solomon Ngbede, UNIABUJA’s Chief Security Officer speaking with Premium Times, confirmed that the kidnappers who have been identified as Ifeanyi and Precious Okeke, indeed abducted students but they have been rescued.
“The students were kidnapped five days ago and the kidnappers confessed that they were the ones who picked them up so we went there in the company of the police and rescued the girls last night and they are with their parents now,”
“The kidnappers came back yesterday to pick another set of girls. They were two men and a lady. The students were able to recognise them, so we have the men and two girls in our custody,” Mr Ngbede said.
