Unknown gunmen invade private university in Cross River; abduct a student
After gunmen invaded Arthur Jarvis University in Cross River State and shot sporadically, there was tension.
According to reports, the incident happened on Tuesday, July 19, as students were returning from classes on campus.
The university is located in the Akpabuyo Local Government Area, approximately 15 kilometers from Calabar. Students who managed to flee to safety sustained multiple injuries.
“The gunmen succeeded in abducting one of them and left another with severe matchete cuts. We understand that the kidnapped student was taken into the nearby forest”, a source told Daily Post.
According to another source, the kidnapped student has been identified as Josephine Etim Edet, and the victim had just finished her final paper for the semester when the incident occurred.
Meanwhile, school officials issued a statement confirming the invasion and urging parents and students to remain calm, adding that they were on top of the situation.
According to the Police Public Relations Officer, Irene Ugbo, the Commissioner of Police, Aminu Alhassan, dispatched the anti-kidnapping, anti-cultism, and Dragon Units to the school to prevent a breakdown in law and order and secure the release of the kidnapped student.
Ugbo went on to say that they had launched investigations to find out what caused the attack on the private university students.
