Bandits abducts students in Maradun, Zamfara State


Bandits have abducted students of Government Day Secondary School, Kaya in Maradun Local Government Area of Zamfara State.

Details of the incident are still sketchy but the armed men were said to have broken into the school this morning.

A resident of the community told newsmen that the armed men stormed the school around 11:30am when the students were writing examination.

The number of the students kidnapped cannot be ascertained as at the time of filing this report but the abducted female students tend to outnumber the male ones because the school is mixed.

The development comes a few days after some students abducted in the state regained freedom.

Maradun is the hometown of the state governor, Bello Matawalle and a top Government House source in Gusau said the governor has been informed of the abduction and was holding a security meeting over it.
