Some suspected gunmen invaded a residential estate located at Damba area of Gusau and kidnapped a non-academic staff and another student of the Federal University, Gusau.
According to sources, Kabiru Rabiu Lawal Bilbis a staff of the Information unit under office of the Vice Chancellor of Federal University Gusau as well as one other student of the University who hailed from Shagamu in Ogun state were among those abducted.
Another student studying at Maryam Abacha University, Maradi in Niger Republic but residing in the same estate with the two abductees was among those abducted.
The incident according to a source took place around 3:00am on Thursday and the bandits allegedly forced themselves into the residential estate and perfected their negative deal against the abductees.
“The student from FUGUS who hails from Shagamu in Ogun State just returned to the school on Sunday but sadly abducted by the gunmen on Thursday” a source added.
“The student as well the staff Mr Kabiru were picked by the suspected kidnappers off the campus of the University.
“When they arrived in the area (Damba) they have forcefully broken the entry doors and moved away with the abductees from their respective apartments” a source added.
“They moved with them to an unknown destination and up to this evening they do not call to place any demands”.
A source said, “they moved from apartment to apartment within the estate and luckily enough they do not met people in some apartments, but these three persons located were sadly abducted”.
Damba area has become exposed to armed bandit activities again since for almost a week now the bandits have been making some successful attempts to invade houses in the area.
For some days now, security operatives including police and military have been establishing presence along the Damba area, especially after a successful operation by the bandits last week which resulted in the killing of one person and abductions of four others.
