The Kogi State Government has verified the kidnapping of nine students from the Confluence University of Science and Technology in Osara, Okene. However ,Usman Ododo, the state governor, promised the people that the abducted Students would be returned safely.

The students, who were studying for their upcoming examinations, were taken on Thursday night at about 9 p.m. by bandits who stormed the campus. The kidnappers apparently entered through the bush, walked into three lecture halls, and started shooting into the air to intimidate the students.

Kingsley Fanwo, the state commissioner for information and communications, stated on Friday that the governor triggered the security architecture as soon as he received the report in order to track the kidnappers, guarantee the rescue of the students, and apprehend the abductors.

Fanwo said that while nine students have been reported missing, local hunters and security personnel are attempting to guarantee the safe return of the kidnapped students.

The state Government expressed its gratitude to the local hunters and security personnel for their diligent work and ordered security personnel to be stationed outside every tertiary institution in the state.
