The university located on Kaduna-Abuja highway, was attacked at about 8:35p.m on Tuesday.

The Command Public Relations Officer, ASP Mohammed Jalige, however, said security operatives have been deployed to the general area for search and rescue operation.

Eyewitnesses had told The Channels that the gunmen stormed the university last night and started shooting sporadically, before taking some of the students away.

The locals said that the university with about forty students population does not have enough security on the ground, despite being located in one of the epicentres of kidnapping, a situation which they believe made it easier for the bandits to gain easy access into the institution.
