Some students and staff of Government Science Secondary School, Kagara, headquarters of Rafi Local Government Area of Niger State, have been abducted by gunmen.
It was gathered that the attackers invaded the school around 2am on Wednesday.
A witness said a student, who tried to escape lost his loss through a gunshot while some others were injured but on our own, we cannot give verification to this claim.
Commenting on the abduction, Shehu Sani, a former Senator, said he has spoken with the principal of the school who confirmed the incident to be true.
The incident took place 48 hours after 21 passengers heading to Minna, capital of Niger State, were held hostage in broad daylight.
While they were released on Tuesday, news of fresh abductions in the state was received.
The high rate of insecurity in the nation has been a source of concern but all efforts to check the trend have not yielded the desired results.
Recently, President Muhammadu Buhari replaced the service chiefs he appointed in 2015 but insecurity hasn’t stopped under the new service chiefs.
Government Science Secondary School, Kankara, Katsina State, Government Girls’ Science and Technical College, Dapchi Yobe State, and Government Girls Secondary School, Chibok, Borno State, are some of the schools where gunmen have abducted students in the past.
