Anxiety Hits Keffi Residents As Gunmen Abduct Senior Female Lecturer Comfort Adokwe.

There is confusion presently at the Nasarawa State University, Keffi (NSUK) community after some unknown gunmen kidnapped one of the senior lecturers, Dr Comfort Adokwe.

Adokwe, a lecturer in the Faculty of Administration at the university and a Deputy Director, Gender Studies, of the school, was abducted on Sunday night by the gunmen from her residence in Angwan Jaba in Keffi

The Chairman of the Community Development Association, Comrade Ali Sule, who confirmed the development to Daily Post, said the gunmen invaded the lecturer’s compound late at night and whisked her to unknown destination.

He said the kidnappers shot sporadically into the air severally before making away with the lecturer.

He said, “It’s true, our beloved sister, Dr Comfort Adokwe, was kidnapped last night by unknown gunmen at her Residence at Angwan Jaba here in Keffi. We pray that God keeps her safe, secure, and protected and returns her safely to us. We are calling on security agencies to move into action and bring her back safely.”

The incident came barely one week after about four students of the university were kidnapped from their hostel near Angwan Kare.

The abductors of the four students had demanded the sum of N20 million as ransom for the release of the students.

It was reported that a student union leader in the school confirmed that the kidnappers had reached out to the school authorities and demanded the ransom.
