A lecturer with the Department of Theatre Arts of the University of Jos, Dr. Dan Ella, has been kidnapped from his Haske Quarters residence by unknown gunmen.
THISDAY gathered that he 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 was the same community gunmen abducted a female professor of Medical Microbiology and her husband recently, and later released after ransom was paid.
A neighbour of the lecturer, Mr Moses Bature, confirmed that the gunmen who arrived the community around 2am on Wednesday headed straight to the apartment of the lecturer and took him away after breaking their door while shooting to scare away residents.
“It was the sounds of gunshots that woke us up around 2am. But we could not come out to his rescue for fear of becoming victims.
“This morning when we 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,” Bature said.
