Just in: a Lecturer of the University of Jos is Kidnapped by Gunmen
in the early hours of Wednesday, June 9, 2021, a lecturer of the University of Jos, Plateau state, Dan Ella, was kidnapped by gunmen.
Philip Gyang, an eyewitness, told The Nation that the criminals raided Ella residence located in the Jos North local government area of the state and whisked him away to an unknown destination after firing shots to scare neighbours away, Gyang said:
“What happened last night in Haske quarters was terrible. It was the sounds of gunshots that woke us up around 3 am. But we could not come out when it became clear that Haske quarters was under attack by gunmen.”
The lecturer’s abduction was confirmed by Lazarus Maigoro the chairman of the university’s chapter of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU). Maigoro disclosed:
“It’s true because I just received an official report on the kidnap of one of our members in Lamingo area last night. I’m preparing a press release on the incident. “Something has to be done about this kidnapping of innocent people because it’s really sad and should not be allowed to continue.”
