Kidnappers Abduct Taraba University Deputy Register

The Deputy Registrar Administration of the Taraba State University, Jalingo, Mr Sanusi Sa’ad has been kidnapped by unknown gunmen in the early hours of Tuesday.

Naija News understands Sa’ad, who also doubles as the Information and Protocol Officer of the University was picked in his house at the University quarters around 1am today.

Chairman of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, Taraba State University chapter, Dr. Samuel Shikaa, confirmed the incident in a telephone interview with Punch correspondent in Jalingo.

Shikaa reported that the gunmen came into the house through the back side of the University that is not fenced and whisked the Deputy Registrar away to an unknown destination.

It is also reported that the Taraba State University branch of ASUU is presently on strike over issues of insecurity of staff occasioned by lack of perimeter fencing of the University, funding, and pension for staff among others.

Commissioner of Police, Taraba State, Mr. Alkasim Sanusi, had last week while launching operation Puff Adder warned kidnappers and other criminals to leave the state as the command was ready to root them out.
