Recall that On Saturday 11th of March, 2021, gunmen attacked the Federal College of Forestry Mechanization, Afaka in the Igabi Local Government Area, of Kaduna and kidnapped thirty nine students.
Ten of the students have been released, the fate of the remaining ones still hangs in the balance.
This information was published by The Nation Newspaper with the headline "Gunmen attack Kaduna private varsity, kidnap students"
According to the published report, The Nation has it that, 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.
However, eyewitnesses that spoke to Channels Television said that, the gunmen stormed the university last night and started shooting sporadically, before taking some of the students away.
They further disclosed that, the university with about forty students population does not have enough security on the ground, despite being located in one of the den of kidnapping, a situation which they believe made it easier for the bandits to gain easy access into the institution.
