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

An eyewitness account revealed that the bandits invaded the university around 9 p.m. while the students were reading for their forthcoming exams.

The source said that the gunmen came in through the bush, went into three lecture halls, and began to warm the air to scare the already panicked students.

The source said, “They trapped the students inside the halls and started taking them; the school was thrown into total confusion as fear-stricken students in other halls scurried to safety, scampering in various directions.

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

“But the efforts minimised the damage as the attackers didn’t go beyond the first three halls.”
