An abducted student of Abia State University, Uturu (ABSU) has regained her freedom.

Last week, gunmen abducted an unspecified number of students from the university, however, some were able to escape leaving one in captivity.

They were abducted along Okigwe-Uturu road around 8pm on Wednesday.

In a series of tweets on Saturday night, Okezie Ikpeazu, Abia governor, said his administration has taken measures to strengthen security around the area where the abduction happened.


The governor said those who abducted the students would be brought to book.

“It is with exceedingly great joy and a very pleasant sense of relief that I announce that the only kidnapped ABSU student who was still in custody of the hoodlums that abducted some people few days ago along the Okigwe-Uturu Road has been freed,” Ikpeazu tweeted.

“I spoke with her and her mother minutes ago and want to thank God, our security agents and the management of ABSU for a job well done leading to this good news.


“Our administration has since taken measures to strengthen security around the area where the incident happened and even beyond it to ensure security of lives and property which remains my number one assignment as Governor and it is one duty I will never take lightly.

“We will surely take justice to those who abducted our student as we will not cohabit this state with criminals. To God be the glory!”
