Gunmen Attack And Kidnap Private University Students In Kaduna. The academic institution, Greenfield University, is located along the Kaduna–Abuja Highway in Chikun Local Government Area, and also the first private university in the state established three years ago.

Gunmen have attacked this private university in Kaduna State on Tuesday night, abducting an unspecified number of students. 

The latest incident is the first major attack that bandits will launch on communities around the Kaduna-Abuja Highway since 300 female soldiers were deployed to the general area in January this year.

The Kaduna State Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, confirmed the incident this afternoon.

However, eyewitnesses, explained that the gunmen stormed the university last night and started shooting spontaneously before taking some of the students away.

The locals said that the university with about forty students population does not have enough security on the ground, despite being located in one of the epicenters of kidnapping.

A situation which they believe made it easier for the bandits to gain easy access into the institution.

Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State has repeatedly insisted his government will not pay ransom to the kidnappers despite pleas by the parents of the abducted students
