Three students of the Nasarawa State Polytechnic have been left injured following an off-campus attack by gunmen. 

Ramhan Nansel, spokesperson of the state police command, told TheCable on Tuesday that a fourth victim is still missing.

Nansel said the command received a distress call concerning a robbery at Ombi 1 in Lafia around 10:30 pm.

He said the victims are all students of the Nasarawa State Polytechnic who reside outside campus.


The spokesperson said one of the students sustained a bullet wound while two others are being treated for injuries.

“Upon receipt of the report, policemen were immediately drafted to the scene. On arrival, it was discovered that three people were injured,” he said.

“The victims were rushed by the police to Dalhatu Araf Specialist Hospital for treatment.


“Upon their return to the scene of the incident, it was later discovered that one person was missing, named Jumoke.

“The command has launched an investigation into the case as the commissioner of police has deployed all tactical teams of the command to go after the perpetrators of the act.”

The attack on Nasarawa Poly comes just days after a similar incident at the Federal University of Gusau (FUG) in Zamfara.

At FUG, armed bandits abducted an unspecified number of students. Some of the students have been rescued.
