Sanusi Sa’ad, deputy registrar, administration, Taraba State University, Jalingo, was on Tuesday morning kidnapped by unknown gunmen.

Samuel Shikaa, chairman of the university’s chapter of Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), confirmed the incident.

Shikaa said Sa’ad, who is also the information and protocol officer of the institution, was picked from his residence at the university staff quarters around 1 am.

He explained that the kidnappers invaded Sa’ad’s residence through the unfenced part of the university and took him to an unknown destination.


Khalid Sa’ad, a brother to the victim, told NAN that the kidnappers had contacted him and demanded a ransom.

He, however, did not mention the amount being demanded, saying he was still negotiating with the kidnappers.

The institution’s branch of ASUU embarked on an indefinite strike since April 3 over the insecurity of staff resulting from lack of perimeter fencing, funding and pension for staff.


The school management had subsequently shut down the institution and asked its students to vacate the campus on Friday.

On Monday, Muhammed Mahmood, chairman, board of Universal Basic Education Commission (UBEC) had been kidnapped alongside his daughter while travelling from Kaduna to Abuja.

Mahmood’s driver was killed when armed bandits opened fire on their vehicle.

They regained their freedom on Tuesday.
