BUK Lecturer Kidnapped In Kaduna After Attack By Unknown Gunmen

A lecturer in the Faculty of Computer Science and Information Technology of Bayero University Kano, (BUK), Alhaji AliyuKiri, has been kidnapped in Birnin-Gwari area of Kaduna State. Kiri was kidnapped on his way back to Kano from Oyo State where he supervised Students Industrial Work Experience Scheme, (SIWES).

A text message being circulated among both lecturers and students by the Faculty Social Director, Shuaibu Abdulrasheed reads in part, “our colleague, Saminu Aliyu Kiri (FCSIT staff ) has been kidnapped on his way back from SIWES supervision at Birnin Gwari, Kaduna State. Let’s pray for his safe and immediate release.” Effort to get the Director of Public Affairs of the University, Alhaji Ahmed Shehu for comment was unsuccessful.
