IBADAN – Four students of Capro Secondary Mission School located at Gana Ropp in Barkin Ladi Local Government Area of Plateau State were abducted in the early hours of Thurs­day.

However, three of the stu­dents have escaped, while one is still in captivity.

The school, an arm of Cal­vary Ministries, is a few kilo­metres away from the Yakubu Gowon Airport and about 60 kilometres from Jos, the state capital.

A global mission leader and President of Para-Mal­lam Peace Foundation, Rev­erend Gideon Para-Mallam, confirmed that the attackers broke the rear fence of the school, where a hole was drilled to gain access into the school compound and abduct­ed the students.

He further stated that the intervention of security agen­cies prevented what could have been another mass ab­duction as the assailants took to their heels after realising the reinforcement of security in the area.

It would be recalled that several students of Greenfield University in Kaduna are still in captivity after they were ab­ducted on April 20.

Amotekun Apprehends 11 Bandits In Oyo

Meanwhile, operatives of the Oyo State Security Net­work Agency, also known as Amotekun, have arrested 11 suspected bandits terrorising residents of the state.

Amotekum commandant in the state, retired Col. Olay­inka Olayanju, disclosed this in a statement on Thursday in Ibadan.

Olayanju said that the suspects were arrested during joint routine patrol with members of the Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC) and other vigilance groups in the early hours of Thursday.

Olayanju said that the sus­pects were arrested at two il­legal check points in different locations.

The commandant said that while five of them were arrested in Saki East Local Government Area, six others were arrested at Kajola coun­cil area of the state.

The commandant said that the suspects had been handed over to the police.

“The bandits whose mo­dus operandi is to pretend as herdsmen in the day and violently rob innocent passen­gers on the highways at night were caught with 183 cows, weapons and a total sum of N268, 470.00.

“They have been handed over to the police along with the 183 herds, weapons and money found in their pos­session for further investi­gation.

“Those with necessary in­formation that could help the law enforcement agencies in their investigation are en­joined to report to the nearest police authority,’ he said.
