Gunmen invaded the campus of the Federal University of Agriculture, Makurdi, over the weekend at night and abducted students, the Police and a source in Benue State have told FIJ.

The Public Relations Officer of the Police in the state, DSP Catherine Anene, told FIJ in a text message that the attack happened at about 10:20pm on April 24 and three students were abducted within the school’s premises.
