”The university axis from Bokkos through Diram and Ndar has been infiltrated by merchants of crime who cash in on the vulnerability of the largely defenceless students’ population”, Izam said.

Showul-Mushi was returning to the campus from Bokkos town when the incident happened.

The kidnappers took N3,000 from him and used his Automated Teller Machine (ATM) card to withdraw money.
