Gunmen abduct students, teacher in Uromi National Construction Institute



Gunmen have reportedly stormed the National Institute of Construction Technology in Uromi, Edo State and abducted two students and a teacher.

Reports say that the heavily armed men stormed the institution in a commando-style around 3 pm on Wednesday, shooting sporadically into the air before gaining access into the campus.

They were said to have taken away the abductees to an unknown destination forcing other staff and students to flee for their lives.

Standard Gazette quoted one student as saying: “We are currently writing our second-semester exam, and the two kidnapped students wrote the examination on Wednesday, and they have more to write on Thursday. Our colleagues just came out of the examination hall when they were just kidnapped inside the campus”.

The Edo State Police Public Relations Officer SP Kontongs said the police would wade into the matter.
