A bus conveying an unknown number of students of Abia State University, Uturu have been abducted on Wednesday night.

Newsmen learnt that the abductors whisked the students into the forest shortly after they ambushed them while journeying on a bus along Okigwe-Uturu Road.

Meanwhile, Abia State Government has assured that efforts were being intensified to ensure the safe return of the abducted students.

Confirming the abduction, the state’s Commissioner for Information, Chief John Okiyi Kalu gave an assurance that the state government was collaborating with the neighbouring Imo State to rescue and students.

He said in a statement, “Abia State Government is currently monitoring an incident that happened in Okigwe, Imo State, yesterday which led to the suspected abduction of yet to be determined number of students of the Abia State University, Uturu (ABSU), who apparently ran into a yet to be identified gang of hoodlums operating along the Okigwe-Uturu Road.

“Preliminary information available to us indicates that the students were moving in a mini van from Okigwe to Uturu between 7pm – 8pm when they ran into the armed gang who marched them into the nearby forest along with other yet to be identified travelers. Two of the students managed to escape from the hoodlums while others are still being held at a yet to be identified location.

“We are working with the government of Imo State and relevant security agencies in both states to ensure the rescue of the abducted students and others.

“Members of the public and ABSU community are advised to remain calm as we will spare no resource in ensuring the safety of the victims.” He said.
