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 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.
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
