The two Nigerian Law School students kidnapped last week by gunmen have regained their freedom after spending one week in the kidnappers’ den.

CITY LAWYER gathered that the students may have been freed yesterday and have since resumed lectures at the Agbani Campus of the Nigerian Law School.

Efforts by CITY LAWYER to reach the kidnap victims proved abortive as their telephone lines were switched off.

CITY LAWYER recalls that the students were reportedly snatched by gunmen around 8 pm last Wednesday while at the Eke Agbani Market to buy foodstuff.

A source had told newsmen that “Two Nigerian Law School students were kidnapped yesterday night by unidentified gunmen at Eke market, Agbani, Enugu.

“Actually, four students were in the car that belonged to one of the students. The students left the campus to get food around 8pm. However, two students managed to escape at gunpoint. We are yet to hear anything from the abductors.”

A source who is familiar with the matter told CITY LAWYER that both the leadership of the Council of Legal Education and Nigerian Law School “were deeply concerned about the incident and made spirited efforts to secure the release of the students. We are happy that they could rejoin their colleagues for the forthcoming Bar Finals exams.”
