Eyewitnesses had reported that the incident happened on 29 March 2024 when gun-toting men stormed Freedom Hostel, owned by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) at about 7:00pm and whisked the victims away to an unknown destination.

One of the witnesses, Emmanuel Effiom described the abduction as very brazen and terrifying.
