Eight students of the Ahmadu Bello University (ABU), Zaria, are said to be in captivity following Sunday’s attack on motorists along the Kaduna-Abuja road. Many people were reportedly abducted during the incident during which two people were said to have been killed by the bandits.


Police sources said on Monday night that the Vice-Chancellor of ABU, Prof. Kabiru Bala, reported the abduction of the students to the Zaria Area Command of the police.


It was gathered that the 300 students, from the Department of French, were traveling on Sunday to Lagos for a programme at the Nigerian French Language Village (NFLV) when the bandits struck.


“The Vice-Chancellor of ABU, Zaria, reported to the Zaria Area Command that eight students of the French Department were kidnapped.
“The names of the students are Okafor Chris, Ayuba Lois, John Elizabeth, Musa Precious, Asoji Faith, Badmus Jemimah, Emmanuel Simon, and Aliyu Adamu,” the source said.


It was gathered two of the students were among the 11 people who were also abducted but were said to have been rescued by security personnel on Sunday.
The source said efforts were being made to rescue the students.
