A total of eight people, including six female students, have been kidnaped from a boarding public school in Nigeria’s northwest Kaduna province, Nigerian police confirmed on Thursday.
Yakubu Sabi, a police spokesman for Kaduna province, said “Some armed men gained entry into the Engravers College, a boarding Secondary School in a remote area in Kaduna State, and took away two staff of the college and six female students to an unknown destination,”
He asked school authorities to remain in touch with the police to ensure security in the school premises.
It was not immediately clear who had taken them.
Of late, kidnapping cases have been on the rise in Nigeria. Early September, three girls were abducted by some gun men in a school in Lagos, Nigerian commercial city. They were rescued a week later.
