There has been a series of attacks across the country in recent times, with gunmen invading communities and schools, leading to abductions and killings, especially in the northern region.

Over 20 students were kidnapped from Greenfield University in Kaduna last week, with five of them shot to death to force the government to negotiate for their release.

However, 10 of the students abducted from the Federal College of Forestry Mechanisation have been released.
