Ten students of Abia State University, Uturu (ABSU) have reportedly been abducted by bandits along the Ihube-ABSU Road.
The abduction comes weeks after three lecturers of the institution were kidnapped by gunmen along Uturu/Isuikwuato Road.
The incident, which reportedly took place between 5 pm and 6 pm on Saturday, has left the university community in disarray.
It was reported that an Abia line bus conveying passengers to the school, an SUV and a Hilux van belonging to a private firm was found empty at the scene of the incident, an indication that it could not be only the students that were abducted.
A security source said the total number of abducted persons is not yet known.
