The Plateau State University (PLASU) says its security operatives have repelled an attack on its campus by suspected bandits.

The school authority said the gunmen invaded the female hostel of the institution in Bokkos on Tuesday night but there was no abduction.

John Agams, public relations officer of the institution who spoke with NAN, confirmed the incident.

Agams said the bandits’ intent was to kidnap the students but they were repelled by the local security operatives in the university.


“It is true that gunmen attempted to kidnap some of our students, but it was repelled by our local security men,” he said.

“In the process, one student was injured, but no student was abducted.

“The Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Benard Matur, is currently at the school premises and appealing to students to be peaceful.”
