Bandits Kidnap Students In Niger State




Students of Government Science College Kagara, Niger state have been abducted by suspected armed bandits.

Former Senator, Shehu Sani,  revealed this via Twitter on Wednesday, February 17, confirming the attack on the school which is his alma mata.

Senator Sani stated that some staff members of the institution were also abducted by armed men.

He said he has spoken with the principal of the school about the abduction.

He said: ”Early hours of this morning, Armed bandits stormed the Government Science College Kagara Niger State, my alma mata, and abducted some students and staff family members. I just spoke to the principal. This is the clip of one of my past visit to the School.”

The bandits reportedly in military uniforms attacked the school on Tuesday night, February 16, and overpowered the security guard, before whisking away the students.

While some students escaped after the raid, a headcount had been conducted at the school to ascertain the actual number of missing students.

Security agencies have reportedly launched an operation to rescue the students from their abductors. Nigerian Air Force helicopters have reportedly been seen hovering in the air to track the location of the students.

Recall that in December 2020, bandits abducted about 300 boys from their school in Kankara, Katsina State.
