Abducted Abia University Student Regains Freedom

A female student of the  Abia State University who was kidnapped on Wednesday has regained her freedom.

Last week, gunmen kidnapped an unspecified number of students from the university, however, some of the students were able to escape leaving one in captivity.

The students were abducted along Okigwe-Uturu road around 8pm on Wednesday.

Confirming the release of the student on Saturday, Governor Okezie Ikpeazu, said his administration has taken measures to strengthen the security around the area where the abduction took place.

“It is with exceedingly great joy and a very pleasant sense of relief that I announce that the only kidnapped ABSU student who was still in custody of the hoodlums that abducted some people few days ago along the Okigwe-Uturu Road has been freed,” Ikpeazu tweeted.

“I spoke with her and her mother minutes ago and want to thank God, our security agents and the management of ABSU for a job well done leading to this good news.

“Our administration has since taken measures to strengthen security around the area where the incident happened and even beyond it to ensure security of lives and property which remains my number one assignment as Governor and it is one duty I will never take lightly.

“We will surely take justice to those who abducted our student as we will not cohabit this state with criminals. To God be the glory!”
