Bandits, on Thursday night, May 9, invaded the Confluence University of Science and Technology (CUSTEC) Osara, Okene in Kogi State, and kidnapped some students.

The students were reading for their upcoming exams when the bandits arrived around 9:00 pm through the bush, went into three lecture halls, and began shooting into the air to scare students.

The students were trapped in the halls as they had been surrounded by the bandits who then picked them up in their numbers.

By the time local security guards and the conventional security men at the gate arrived, the bandits had already succeeded in abducting some students.

Several students took to social media during the attack to cry out for help. Videos from the scene show the aftermath of the chaos.

The chairs in the classes were in disarray and pairs of slippers left by fleeing students were scattered all over the classroom floor.

A student who spoke after the attack said that he and some colleagues ran to the bush and hid there for “more than an hour” and only came out when everywhere became quiet.
