ABDUCTORS of the two students of Federal University, Wukari, in Taraba State are demanding a ransom of N50m in exchange for the freedom of the students.

The Head of Information and Protocol Unit of the institution, Mrs Ashu Agbu, disclosed this in a telephone conversation with journalists on Sunday.

 “The abductors revealed that they came for the owner of the eatery and not his staff and will return to get him.

“They are demanding a ransom of N50m to free the two students. Since the incident, security agencies and youths of the area are combing the surrounding forests and bush paths to apprehend the kidnappers and will not relent until the students are rescued alive and safe,” she said.

Ashu hinted that an expanded meeting would be held on Sunday with security agencies, alongside local, state and federal governments representatives, to find a lasting solution to insecurity affecting the institution.

The According reports that about 90 per cent of the students and staff of the institution live outside the school premises.

It will be recalled that two students of the Federal University, Wukari, were abducted on April 3 at about 10 pm at a shop close to the school.

The two abducted students, Joshua Sardauna of the Economics Department and Obianu Elizabeth of the Microbiology Department, returned to rewrite their examinations as a result of the carry-over they had last session.
