The Kogi State Government has said that it will not succumb to terrorism, following the attack of the Confluence University of Science and Technology by unknown gunmen.

The university was invaded by kidnappers on Thursday, according to a statement by the State commissioner for Information and Communication, Mr. Kingsley Femi Fanwo.

It said that immediately the report was received, the Kogi State Governor, His Excellency Alh. Ahmed Usman Ododo activated the security architecture to track the kidnappers and ensure the abducted students are rescued and the abductors apprehended.

“Hundreds of local hunters who understand the terrain as well as the conventional security agents are currently combing the area to ensure safe rescue of the abducted students who were kidnapped in the classrooms. So far, nine students have been reported missing,” it stated

The statement read in part, “We wish to assure students, parents and the entire people of Kogi State that the government is on top of the situation and all the abducted students will be rescued alive.

Governor Ahmed Usman Ododo has also directed that security agents be positioned around all tertiary institutions in the State.”

We wish to commend the local hunters and other security agents who rose stoutly to engage the kidnappers. Their gallantry and dedication ensured that the kidnappers did not have a field day which would have been more calamitous. The State Government will spare nothing in ensuring that all the students abducted are safely rescued and reunited with their families. We won’t submit to terror. We shall prevail. “
