Unidentified gunmen over the weekend attacked the University of Jos Staff Quarters, killing a lecturer identified as Dr Nendi Drengkat, and kidnapping Drengkat’s six-year-old daughter.
Chairman of the institution’s branch of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, Dr Lazarus Maigoro, confirmed the incident to The PUNCH in Jos on Saturday.
The ASUU Chairman said, “I have just returned from the University of Jos Staff Quarters where the attack took place. Some gunmen went there last night and shot dead one of our colleagues of the Faculty of Education, Dr Nendi Drengkat. “The gunmen also went away with his little daughter of about six years and are now asking for N10 million ransom.
“The State Police Commissioner has visited the staff quarters and promised that he would investigate the matter. The incident is really very unfortunate.”
