Zamfara: Two kidnapped female soldiers regain freedom

Kidnapped Taraba University student regains freedom

Two abducted students of the Federal University in Wukari, Taraba State have regained their freedom.

Earlier this month, Joshua Sardauna and Obianu Elizabeth, members of the Department of Economics and Department of Microbiology, were abducted by unknown gunmen from a nearby restaurant on their instructions.

According to DAILY POST, the kidnappers initially demanded a ransom of 50 million naira, which was later reduced to 12 million naira, but after a series of negotiations, they settled for 700,000 naira.

The university's head of information and protocol, Ashu Agbu, told reporters that the victims regained their freedom last night.

She acknowledged that a ransom was paid to secure his release, but said the collaborative efforts of security forces and school administrators facilitated his release.

The kidnappers are said to have kidnapped the students after missing their target, a restaurant owner.

Some students who spoke to reporters called on the state and federal governments to work with their institutions' security teams to prevent future incidents.
