A lecturer with the University of Jos in Plateau State, Dr. Dan Ella has been kidnapped by gunmen.

Naturenex News gathered that Ella, with the Department of Theatre Arts in the institution, was abducted in the early hours of Wednesday by gunmen who attacked his residence located at Haske quarters in Lamingo community, Jos North Local Government Area of the state

Haske quarters, behind Stanel Oil, is the same community where gunmen last month kidnapped a Professor and her husband and later released them after allegedly collecting ransom.

A member of the community, Philip Gyang confirmed the latest abduction to our correspondent in Jos on Wednesday.

Gyang said that the gunmen who arrived in the community around 2am on Wednesday headed straight to the apartment of the lecturer and whisked him away after breaking their door while shooting to prevent his rescue from residents who were already terrified.

Gyang said, “What happened last night in Haske quarters was terrible. It was the sounds of gunshots that woke us up around 2am. But we could not come out when it became clear that Haske quarters was under attack by gunmen.

“So, this morning when everyone came out, we discovered that they had taken Dr. Dan Ella away after breaking into their house. It’s really painful because this thing is happening again in the same place where a professor and her husband were kidnapped in similar circumstances last month and Dr Ella who is their neighbour was the one running around to make sure that the kidnapped husband and wife were rescued. And now, he is the one that has been abducted and no one knows where they have taken him to.”

“Something has to be done about this kidnapping of innocent people because it’s really sad and should not be allowed to continue.”

The Police Public Relations Officer in Plateau State, Ubah Ogaba, when contacted, was not available to speak on the incident.
