The ugly development heightened tension in the area with parents and guardians storming the institute to ascertain the whereabouts of their children and wards.

The invasion took place at a time the students were writing their second semester examinations.

The kidnapped students also took part in the exam on Wednesday.

A former Edo Speaker, Friday Itulah, told The Nation: “The institute is known for excellence. I wonder what made the kidnappers to storm the institution.

“I wish to call on the police and other security agencies to beef up security in Esan land and other parts of Edo State.”

Itulah, who later represented Esan Northeast/Southeast constituency in the House of Representatives, also urged Edo people to always be vigilant.

Edo Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Bello Kontongs, a Superintendent of Police (SP) confirmed the incident.

He disclosed that police were on the trail of the kidnappers, vowing to get them with the victims to be released unhurt and unconditionally.
