Update: Kidnapped UNIJOS lecturer regains freedom

Dr. Dan Ella, a senior lecturer in the Department of Theatre Arts, University of Jos has regained freedom after being abducted by gunmen in the early hours of Tuesday June 8. 

 

He was abducted after gunmen attacked his residence located near Haske quarters in Lamingo community, Jos North Local Government Area of the state.

 

Ella was seen on Thursday night along Jos-Bauchi road after his abductors released him. Chairman of the University of Jos branch of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Dr Lazarus Maigoro who confirmed Ella’s release in Jos on Friday June 11, asked authorities to find a solution to issue of lecturers in the university being kidnapped. 

 

Maigoro said; 

 

“I can confirm to you that our abducted colleague has been released and we thank God for him regaining his freedom.

“But we are not happy over what is happening because this is the fourth time our colleagues were abducted within this year.

“There have been security meetings and yet these abductions keep reoccurring. Early this year, one staff was kidnapped right inside the university quarters. Those in their private residence outside the quarters are not safe either. How do you explain this kind of situation?”
