Six more abducted Kogi University students rescued

The Kogi State government says six more students kidnapped from the Confluence University of Science and Technology (CUSTECH) Osara, Okene, have regained their freedom.  


The students were abducted by suspected bandits who invaded the school premises last Thursday, May 9. Fourteen students were earlier rescued by the state government. In an update given today May 14, the state Commissioner for Information, Kingsley Fanwo, stated that six more students have been safely rescued.


The Commissioner said;

“Our data shows that there are four students yet to be found. The fierce gun battle between security agents and the kidnappers forced the kidnappers to succumb to superior firepower and abandon the kidnapped students. Some of the kidnappers escaped with severe injuries”

The Commissioner said that the families of the six students just rescued, confirmed that they have arrived home.
