A group of unidentified gunmen attacked a university in Nigeria’s north-central state of Benue Sunday, abducting three students, local police said Monday.

The students of the Federal University of Agriculture in Makurdi, the state capital, were kidnapped at about 10:20 pm local time Sunday, Catherine Anene, a police spokesperson in the state told reporters in Makurdi.

“Information was received from the school authority that on April 25, at about 10:20 pm some unknown men kidnapped three students who were studying close to a school hall,” she said. “For now, my advice to parents of the students is that they should remain calm. We are doing our best to ensure that they get their children back.”

She said full investigations of the crime had started to track the kidnappers. Enditem
