Nigeria: Gunmen abduct “dozens of students” from a public school


Gunmen proceeded with the abduction “Many students” and teachers from an educational institution in Nigeria, according to what security sources in the country reported today.

The gunmen stormed the Government College of Science at about 3 p.m. local time, in Kagara (Niger community), in the north of the country.

The Secretary of State Government of Niger, Ibrahim Matan confirmed that “kidnappers” wearing military uniforms had invaded the school and “They defeated the security guards to kidnap the children.” They were then transferred to a neighboring forest. Information speaks of abduction at least 26 students and four teachers, while references to local media want a student to lost his life from gunshots, when he tried to escape from the kidnappers. They study at this school about 1,000 children. Original sources spoke of “Abduction of hundreds of students”, however the exact number has not yet been ascertained.

This incident occurred just two months after abduction of more than 300 boys from a boarding school in the state of Katsina, organized by Boko Haram.

The children were released after a week in the forest. Boko Haram said she abducted the boys as she wished “Discourages the non-Islamic practices of Western education.”
