One undergraduate student was abducted in the Plateau State Polytechnic in the early hours of Monday, the gunmen raided the staff quarters of the polytechnic located at Heipang in Barki Ladi local government area of the state.
The abducted lady, 24, is said to be the younger sister to Ezekiel Rangs, assistant deputy registrar of the institution.
The attack is the second on the institution in two months. In February, suspected gunmen abducted Kim, the 12-year-old son of Andrew Dido, chaplain of the polytechnic.
“We had a report of the case of kidnap. We have recorded the case. A 24-year old girl was kidnapped and our men have been mobilised to follow the trail of the kidnappers,” Terna said.
He, however, declined to confirm if the lady kidnapped is Rangs’ sister.
“The most important thing is that a child has been kidnapped. I think all human beings are equal,” he said.
The development comes less than 24 hours after Yinka Adegbehingbe, a professor at the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, was kidnapped near Ikire on the Ife-Ibadan expressway.
