He said: “We are pleased to inform you that the four students from Nasarawa State University, Keffi (NSUK), who were kidnapped have been reportedly released today. This development follows the payment of an undisclosed ransom.”
Recall that 3 female and one male students were kidnapped in their off campus resident on 10th of October, 2023, at 10:30pm, in Keffi the Capital of the State. The abduction caused panic and anxiety in the University and its environs. The abductors subsequently demanded a 20-million-naira ransom before the student could be freed.
With the promixity of security forces to the university and the laxity exhibited in pursing the criminals by same governmental agencies, observers are wondering if there is a possible collusion between the present government in power and the sinister criminals
