Four kidnapped UNIPORT students regain freedom

The four students of the University of Port Harcourt who were abducted by gunmen have regained their freedom.

The students were returning from the Ahoada area of Rivers State when the kidnappers struck and whisked them away.

It was gathered that the victims escaped on Wednesday when a team of security operatives invaded the kidnappers’ den and engaged them in a shootout.

The Public Relations Officer of the university, Sam Kpenu, while confirming the development, said the students had been reunited with their families.

He said, “Four students of the University of Port Harcourt who were kidnapped last weekend have been released and reunited with their families.

“Gbaa Nenubari, Asumbo Elizabeth, Eze Chimezie and Onosigho Augustine were abducted on their way from the Orashi River where they had gone for a vegetation sampling for their final year project and postgraduate research work.”

Kpenu said the Vice Chancellor of the school, Professor Owunari Georgewill, who received the four students in his office, commended the Nigeria Police Force, the Chief Security Officer of the university and the entire security agencies in Rivers and Bayelsa states for their prompt intervention which led to the release of the victims.
