The Federal University Dutsinma (FUDMA) has stated that it is becoming worrisome over the continuous detention and silence over the abduction of the institution’s lecturer, Abubakar Idris, who was abducted by suspected bandits at his residence on the 2nd of August, 2019.
According to findings, the abductors of Idris are yet to establish any contact from his family members or ask for a ransom.
The Acting Director, Public Relations and Protocol Officer of the institution, Habibu Matazu, in a statement made it known that “The university management described as inhuman and abuse of human right, the abduction of a family man like Abubakar Idris whose detention has generated tension and uncertainties to members of the university community and his family in particular.
“Soon after the abduction of the lecturer, the management of FUDMA held an emergency meeting and reported the missing of Idris to all relevant Security agencies in the state,” he stated.
“The management also as part of its resolutions on the unfortunate incidence reported the matter to the Katsina State Governor, Aminu Bello Masari requesting the government to explore ways of rescuing the missing lecturer from his abductors, who up till now did not call for a ransom or any other reason for his abduction,” he added.
The university appealed to the abductors to kindly release Idris so he can report back to work and to his loved ones.
