Gunmen Abduct Nasarawa varsity Lecturer In Keffi

A lecturer at Nasarawa State University, Keffi (NSUK), Dr Comfort Adokwe has been reportedly kidnapped by some unidentified gunmen.

The gunmen kidnapped Adokwe, a lecturer at the Faculty of Administration and Deputy Director of Gender Studies, on Sunday night at her home in Angwan Jaba in Keffi.

Comrade Ali Sule, the Chairman of the Community Development Association, confirmed the development, saying the lecturer was abducted by gunmen who broke into her complex late at night and took her to an unknown location.

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.”

However, DSP. Ramhan Nansel, the state’s Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), said he was unaware of the occurrence since he had not been briefed when called by a journalist.

“I have not been briefed,” Nansel said.

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