The kidnappers of some students of Abia State University, ABSU, Uturu, has released the only student left in their custody who was among scores kidnapped while travelling along the Okigwe-Uturu Road.

This was announced by Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State on his official Twitter handle, @GovernorIkpeazu, in the late hours of Saturday.

He tweeted, “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 the custody of the hoodlums that abducted some people a few days ago along the Okigwe-Uturu Road, has been freed. 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 the security around the area where the incident happened and even beyond it ensure the security of lives and property, which remains my number one assignment as governor. 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”.

A yet-to-be-confirmed number of students were kidnapped while transiting on a bus on Okigwe-Uturu Road.

Meanwhile, the Vice-Chancellor of the Abia State University, Professor O. M Ogbulu, in a press conference in Umuahia on Friday confirmed that two of the students escaped from the hoodlums while one was still being held.
