Nine Nigerian Students Kidnapped in Ukraine

A statement released by the representative of the National Security and Defence Council Information Centre Andriy Lysenko, has said nine Nigerian students have been kidnapped in Ukraine but negotiations are under way to free the students taken captive by rebels in the eastern city of Luhansk.

Ukrainian news agencies say the suspected militants abducted the Nigerian students on Monday and have been holding them as prisoners at an occupied government security building, close to the Russian border.


The Rebels seeking greater autonomy have been waging a bloody battle in eastern Ukraine against the government and by so doing kidnapped nine Nigerian students schooling in the country.


Relatives of the kidnapped students have also been making efforts to hold a press conference at the Nigerian Embassy in Ukraine since their abduction on Monday.

  10. Ukraine or what? I saw one ad calling for people who wish to school in Russia to come and register; and I laughed thinking no one would go to a place like that. Little did I know that some Nigerians are even schooling in worst places
