Mr David Aigbefoh, the Vice Chairman, Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), Gwagwalada branch in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) has commended the Nigeria Police and other security agencies for rescuing the abducted lecturers of the University of Abuja (UniAbuja).
Aigbefoh gave the commendation in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Friday in Gwagwalada.
He particularly commended the great efforts of the Commissioner of Police (FCT Command), CP Babaji Sunday, the AIG Zone 7, Bala Ciroma and other security agencies that participated in the rescue operation.
Earlier, the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), UniAbuja Branch, had on Thursday called on the Federal Government and security agencies to ensure the immediate rescue and release of all the abducted staff members.
He said that unless stringent and urgent measures were put in place to address them things might become worse.
According to him, the university senior staff quarters were built by President Shehu Shagari’s administration, originally as Police Barracks.
At the inception of UniAbuja in 1988, the quarters were converted to temporary accommodation for founding staff members.
