They abducted a staff member of the institution.
ABU Public Affairs Director, Auwalu Umar, confirmed the attack in a statement.
The spokesman said the incident occurred at Sardauna Crescent, Area BZ, within the main campus.
The assailants also seized the victim’s wife, daughter and ran into the bush.

He said the Vice-Chancellor, Prof Kabir Bala, has appealed for calm and advised everyone to be vigilant.
