Kidnappers Have Killed Two Of Our Abducted Students – CUSTECH Says


The Confluence University of Science and Technology (CUSTECH), Kogi, has announced the killing of two of its students by evil minded kidnappers.

The two first year students who were among those abducted by the kidnappers that storm the University on May 9, 2024, are James Michael-Anajuwe of the Department of Information Technology and Musa Hussein of the Department of Software Engineering.

Twenty-one of the students were rescued by the joint efforts of security operatives and local hunters.

The management of the University has therefore declared a three-day mourning over killing of two students of the institution.

These were contained in a statement on Sunday, May 26, 2024 by the Registrar of CUSTECH, Ms Olufunke Hudson, who said that the students were abducted while reading for their examinations slated to start on May 13, 2024.

Hudson said: “It is with deep shock and pain that the management of CUSTECH is mourning our beloved slain students.

“Consequently, all activities in the university are to be held low-key from May 27 to May 29 in memory of our departed students,” she directed.

Hudson also said the management of the university shared in the grief of the families and colleagues of the deceased students and urged the parents, other family members, guardians, friends and well-wishers of the deceased students to take solace in God.

The CUSTECH Registrar said, the state government is intensifying efforts to ensure safe rescue of the remaining students from their abductors.

According to her; “Governor Usman Ododo is leaving no stone unturned at ensuring that the students are released safely. We, therefore, urge everyone to remain calm and maintain the peace the state is enjoying”.
