Not up to 24 hours, from the time unknown gunmen tensed the University of Abuja staff quarters, on Wednesday, 3rd November, another set of unknown gunmen loomed around again. The hoodlums who came earlier had kidnapped six people from the University.

The gunmen invaded the University’s permanent site at about 11 a.m that day. They attacked a lecturer seated in his office at the Economics department- Dr. David Okoroafor.

Dr. Okoroafor attested to the attack on journalists in Abuja. He noted that he barely escaped death from his assaulters, as they made stringent efforts to terminate his life.

In his statement to officials of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Dr. Okoroafor expressed:

“Dear ASUU members and UNIABUJA Community, I wish to formally bring to your notice that today, Wednesday (3/11/2021) I was attacked in my office located at Room 6, 1st floor, Faculty of Social building, at the permanent site.

“At exactly 10 am, when I arrived the building, opened my office and began to pray in my usual way, suddenly two men brandishing weapon bunched into the office and ordered me to lay down flat on my face or they blew me up.

“I pounced on them and the gun. But the duo started to hit me hard. I began to shout at the top of my voice for help. When my voice went higher, they ran out and students pursued after them. But when they brandished their gun, the students became afraid and ran back, giving them room to escape into the bush.

“But during the scuffle in my office, their car key fell off which I picked and handed over to the University security unit.”
