DEVELOPING STORY: There are reports reaching us that Igbinedion University, a private tertiary institution in Okada, Edo State, Nigeria is under attack by unknown gunmen. The gunmen suspected to be militant kidnappers are reported to have arrived the school premises since 3am, and have been matcheting people, destroying cars and properties and have injured a number of students and might have killed one. Gates to the school have been blocked by the assailants and as such there are no movements into or outside the school.

Help is being sought from security operatives to contain the situation before it escalates!

On June 8, 2012, the school authorities reported that four students of the institution had been kidnapped by unknown persons on the road leading to the school. The students, all medical students of the university have since been released.

More information concerning this latest siege of the school to follow as it develops.
