CCTV cameras were switched off ? Governor Ododo alleges sabotage in abduction of Kogi university students

Governor Usman Ododo has alleged sabotage in the abduction of some students of Confluence University of Science and Technology (CUSTEC) Osara, Kogi, around 9pm on Thursday, May 9, while they were preparing for their examinations.

 

Ododo who visited the university campus for assessment said preliminary investigations point to internal sabotage in the abduction of students in the state.

 

According to him, the Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) cameras installed in the school were switched off on the day of the attack. He also thanked security operatives for their efforts in containing the attack and preventing the invaders from gaining access to the hostels.

 

Ododo said; 

 

“We installed CCTV cameras in all the classrooms and the entire perimeter of the university campus. Yet, on the day of the attack, our investigation so far revealed that all the cameras were switched off.

“Our security agencies are on their heels and the investigation is ongoing. All our students shall return safely and the perpetrators shall be brought to book.

“I am here to see things myself; to assess the situation and also to review the ongoing operation that will ensure the safe return of the students to the school. What is most important now is how to rescue our students unhurt.

“We have the right information at our disposal but we can’t put all that out in the media. I want the parents and students to be calm as we are making concerted effort to secure the return of the students.”
