Gunmen Kidnap Lecturer, 3 Students in Kaduna State, North-Central Nigeria
The spate of inceesant kidnappings in Kaduna State, North-Central Nigeria took another dimension, yesterday, as three students and a lecturer of School of Midwifery, Tudun Wada, were abducted by gunmen suspected to be kidnappers.
Sunday Vanguard gathered that the students and the lecturer were reportedly kidnapped on Friday along Birnin Gwari Road, in Birnin Gwari Local government Area of the state, when they were travelling to visit a student who was hosptialised in the area.
It was gathered that their vehicle was intercepted and three of the students and the lecturer were whisked away. A security source in the state confirmed the abduction, though the police were yet to make an official statement. He said efforts were on to secure their release.
In the last three months, more than 30 people have been kidnapped from various places in the state. The Nigerian police Force last week launched a major operation to wipe out kidnappers in the State especially on the Abuja Kaduna highway with the deployment of 600 men and 90 patrol vehicles.
