Dr. Dan Ella, who is a senior lecturer with the University of Jos, who was kidnapped by gunmen, has finally regained his freedom.

From all the reports gathered it was said that Ella was picked up on Thursday night along Jos-Bauchi Road after his abductors released him.

It was reported that he was abducted in the early hours of Wednesday by gunmen who attacked his residence located near Haske quarters in Lamingo community, Jos North Local Government Area of the state.

From confirmation to the PUNCH correspondent, Dr. Lazarus Maigoro the Chairman of the University of Jos branch of the Academic Staff Union of Universities correlated the story.

The ASUU Chairman said, “I can confirm to you that our abducted colleague has been released and we thank God for regaining his freedom.

“But we are not happy over what is happening because this is the 4th time our colleague was abducted within this year.

“There have been security meetings and yet these abductions kept on happening. Early this year, one staff was kidnapped right inside the University quarters and those who are residents outside the quarters are not safe either. How do you explain this kind of situation?”

He called on the authorities to find a solution to the problem and stop the further abduction of lecturers in the University.
