The students are said to be in their final year at the university. One of them is said to be Aminu Bello’s daughter Ummita.
Abuja-Kaduna road is notorious for being a flash-point of kidnappings. In April, Mahmood Abubakar, chairman of the Universal Basic Education Commission (UBEC), and his daughter were kidnapped on the road.
The latest incident is coming a few weeks after 510 police officers were deployed in the area.
We pray for them and hope the security agencies do the needful and ensure that they are safely reunited with their families.
A video recording by a commuter shows the scene of the incident.
