Some of the other victims of the abduction include students of the University of Nigeria Nsukka who were allegedly abducted on the same road.

It is, however, not clear whether the students were released by their abductors alongside Shere over the weekend.

Reacting to the incident, the dean of student affairs for the institution, Edwin Omeje, admitted that no parent has approached the university management to lay complaints of his or her child being abducted.

Omeje said:

“The news of the abduction of UNN students returning to school is still speculation because no parent has come to say that his or her child returning to school was abducted.
“I wouldn’t know if UNN students were among those that were released because I don’t have the record of any abducted student in my office."
