Another UNIJOS Lecturer Kidnapped
June 9, 2021
By Seriki Adinoyi
A lecturer with the Department of Theatre Arts of the University of Jos, Dr. Dan Ella, has been kidnapped from his Haske Quarters residence by unknown gunmen.
THISDAY gathered that he was abducted in the early hours of Wednesday by gunmen who attacked his residence located at Haske quarters in Lamingo community, Jos North Local Government Area of the state.
Haske Quarters was the same community gunmen abducted a female professor of Medical Microbiology and her husband recently, and later released after ransom was paid.
A neighbour of the lecturer, Mr Moses Bature, confirmed that the gunmen who arrived the community around 2am on Wednesday headed straight to the apartment of the lecturer and took him away after breaking their door while shooting to scare away residents.
“It was the sounds of gunshots that woke us up around 2am. But we could not come out to his rescue for fear of becoming victims.
“This morning when we came out, we discovered that they had taken Dr. Dan Ella away after breaking into their house. It’s really painful because this thing is happening again in the same place where a professor and her husband were kidnapped in similar circumstances last month and Dr Ella who is their neighbour was the one running around to make sure that the kidnapped husband and wife were rescued. And now, he is the one that has been abducted and no one knows where they have taken him,” Bature said.

Insecurity in Imo: All the indigenes are culpable, says Maurice Iwu
June 09 2021
Maurice Iwu, former chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), says all indigenes of Imo are to blame for the security challenges in the state.
In recent months, there have been attacks on security operatives and government property in Imo.
On May 30, the violence reached a crescendo when groups of gunmen unleashed four different attacks on strategic locations and government buildings in the state.
Ahmed Gulak, a former aide of ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, was one of the victims of the violence.
Reacting to the insecurity in the state, Iwu, an Imo indigene himself, said the blame for the security crisis should be put at the feet of all residents of Imo.
He said the silence and complicity of Imo indigenes allowed the insecurity to fester.
“Imo is a place where many people come to. No matter who’s causing the problem from outside, there must be some participation by Imo people for that to happen,” the former INEC chairman said in a chat with Arise TV on Wednesday.
“A situation where we are killing people that have come to protect us is stupid. We can’t be killing policemen that are here to protect us. We can’t have our young people being molested because of our own excesses. We Imolites are part of the cause. We can’t exonerate ourselves completely but yet we’re also part of Nigeria.
“We’re guilty, all of us in Imo state, are guilty for allowing such things to happen. For not shouting early enough, we are all guilty.”
Iwu added that the situation is also a fallout of the high unemployment rate in the state.
“Right now, what is happening, we are having our own share of national insecurity. We’re also having some local players and the situation which is inherent anywhere you have a very low employment rate and poverty manifests. We don’t know what is the main trigger. But whatever is the trigger, if we don’t have our people who are ready to be used, then it would not happen,” he said.
