The Police authority on Friday said they have rescued the six staff of the University of Abuja abducted by gunmen on Tuesday and reunited them with their families.
Details of the rescue operation were sketchy but the Federal Capital Police Command spokesperson, Josephine Adeh, confirmed the development in a statement this morning.
AsphericNews had days ago reported of the abduction of two professors, a non-academic staff, and three others were abducted from their official quarters at Giri, 20 Kilometers from the City Centre.
The hoodlums numbering over 20 were said to have shot their way into the compound and whisked away their victims.
Twenty-four hours later, they demanded N300 million ransom.
AsphericNews could not independently ascertain whether ransom was paid before the victims were freed this is because elsewhere where similar abduction happened, families statements contradicted the Police claimed on rescued of their love ones from bandits.
However, Adeh in her statement said, “The FCT Police Command wishes to inform members of the public that all abducted victims of the University of Abuja were rescued and reunited with their families through a joint operation with other security agencies
