The Chairman of the University of Jos branch of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, Dr Lazarus Maigoro confirmed the abduction and also condemned the attack .
Kidnapping for a ransom is now a dirty business for the armed men who took the advantage of the insecurity in the country to run their business underground. Ransom is always expected to be paid to the kidnappers through a middleman , or in their own preferred way ,before the victim would be released.
