Bandits raided another school in Kaduna early Monday, abducting an undetermined number of children.
They assaulted Bethel Secondary School, which is located in Maramara, Chickun Local Government Area, on the outskirts of Kaduna State’s capital.
The number of pupils kidnapped was not immediately confirmed by the Kaduna Police Command.
It however said a joint security team comprising the Police, Army, and others rescued 17 of the abducted students.
The Command’s Police Public Relations Officer (PRO), ASP Muhammed Jalige said: “Yes, I can confirm to you that there was an incident at the school but the joint security team comprising the Police, Army, and others have rescued 17 students.
“For the time being, we can’t claim this is the whole number of pupils kidnapped. We will publish a comment as soon as such information becomes available.”
According to one of the boarding school’s security guards, Mr. Daniel Muhuta, the boarding school was attacked about 1:00 a.m.
“I nearly avoided myself,” he claims. They arrived at 1 a.m. and began shooting. When I heard gunfire, I chose to hide in the back of the school dormitory.”
Many kids were abducted, according to a source from Marmara, but four escaped and returned to school.
“The students told us that the bandits shot two troops, but they couldn’t confirm whether the soldiers were still alive or not,” he said.
“It’s difficult to determine exactly how many pupils were kidnapped.
“Even the pupils who managed to flee were baffled, and they had no idea how many of their classmates the robbers had taken.
As parents and relatives of the kidnapped children surrounded the school, security officers were claimed to have blocked off the area.
