Gunmen on Saturday night invaded the campus of Nuhu Bamalli Polytechnic in Zaria, Kaduna State, and abducted a lecturer at the Department of Electrical and Electronics of the institution, Engineer Bello Atiku, and two children.
The Secretary, Information and Protocol Unit of the Nuhu Bamali Polytechnic, Zaria, Mr Abdullahi Shehu, who narrated how gunmen invaded the institution and kidnapped three people on Saturday told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in a telephone interview on Sunday that the victims were abducted from their homes located within the institution.
He said that the father of the two abducted children was injured by the gunmen and was receiving treatment at Ahmadu Bello University Teaching Hospital, Zaria.
Mr Shehu said the kidnapped lecturer teaches at the School of Engineering, Department of Electrical and Electronics of the polytechnic.
The school which boast of a large expanse of unsecured bush is believed to be the reason why the gunmen had unhindered access to wreak havoc in the school premises.
