Gunmen suspected to be kidnappers have abducted a 300-Level female student of the Bayero University Kano.

The student, identified as Sakina Bello, was said to have been abducted around the Janbulo and Rijiyar Zaki areas of the Kano metropolis on Tuesday.

The abductors were said to have contacted her relations on Wednesday morning and demanded N100 million ransom.

When contacted, the spokesman for Kano State Police Command, DSP Abdullahi Haruna, confirmed the incident.

He said the police had received a report of a missing person around 3pm on Tuesday and started investigating the matter immediately.

He said that the Command had since swung into action with a view to tracing her whereabouts.

Also commenting on the issue, the BUK spokesman, Lamara Azare, said the university has not been on session since July and will resume on November 1.

“We are not on session. We have no student residing on campus at the moment, and we have not received any incident of abduction of any student,” he said.
