Plateau gov commends security agencies for foiling kidnap attempt of PLASU students

The Governor of Plateau State, Mr Simon Bako Lalong has commended security agencies for their swift response that foiled the attempt to kidnap four students of the Plateau State University (PLASU).

It was learnt that the kidnappers on Monday stormed the off-campus student residences at Ndar community near the university campus and attempted to kidnap four students.

On receiving the distress call, officers of Operation Safe Haven, Operation Rainbow, Nigeria Police, university security and Community Watch Group mobilised and went after the kidnappers who had taken four students.

Facing apparent capture, the criminals aborted their mission and ran away leading to the safe recovery of the students.

Governor Lalong who commended the security agencies for rising up to the occasion and being proactive directed the immediate establishment of a police post within the host community of the university in order to forestall any future reoccurrence.

The governor also directed that security is tightened in all other schools across the state to guarantee the safety and security of students.

It would be recalled that the governor had last year directed the university management to improve the security of the institution which led to the installation of CCTV surveillance and early warning systems all over the campus, as well as the preparation for fencing of the entire campus.

The governor has assured the students that all necessary measures will continue to be employed to ensure that they learn and dwell in a peaceful, secure and conducive environment.

Meanwhile, the governor has again appealed to the citizens to assist security agencies with relevant intelligence that will lead to not only the arrest of the fleeing kidnappers but to the apprehension of all criminal elements that are bent on disrupting the peace of the state.

He also commended the local government chairman Yusuf Machen for sustaining synergy with the security agencies and the university community which is key to achieving peace and security in the area.
