Armed Bandits Kidnap At Least 200 Islamiyya Students In Niger State 3

Armed bandits on Sunday abducted many pupils of an Islamic school in Tegina, a densely populated town in Rafi Local Government Area of Niger State.

The bandits reportedly seized the police station in the town and went round the town shooting sporadically into the air to scare residents before breaking into a private school where they abducted children attending Islamic lectures.

The school’s proprietor, Yakubu Idris, told PREMIUM TIMES that the gunmen went away with many students, including his younger sister.

“It is difficult to say the number of students that were abducted,” Mr Idris said. Tegina is the hometown of the local government chairperson, Isma’il Moddibo. It is in the same local government area with Kagara where bandits earlier this year abducted many students but later released them after negotiation with the state government.
