Three lecturers of Shehu Idris College of Health, Makarfi, Kaduna State, have been abducted.
The academic staff were kidnapped on Sunday while travelling to Makarfi from Zaria in Kaduna.
The victims include two women, Rabi Dogo and Halimatu Malam, and the director of the institution’s dental school, identified as Dr. Akawo.
Ahmed Rahama, a staff of the institution, confirmed the development to Premium Times on Monday.
He said the lecturers were kidnapped on Sunday evening.
“We are all not happy at all here. It is indeed a sad event.
“The department had some members of the dental association who visited the school but were lodged in a hotel in Zaria.
“We understand they travelled to Zaria where they had a brief meeting with them that Sunday. And on their way back to Makarfi, they were kidnapped”, he said.
Mr Rahama said the kidnappers took the three lecturers in their cars and kept the director’s car at a junction close to Makarfi town, adding that the police in Makarfi are in custody of the director’s car.
