Kaduna Abduction: Over 100 Students Missing, ’26 Rescued’

Some of the parents of Bethel Baptist High School, Kujama, Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State, said over 100 students were abducted by bandits.

A staff member of the school, who did not want to be named because she is not authorised to speak on the issue, said over 140 students were abducted.

“Over 100 students were abducted, both boys and girls, even though the school is still trying to compile names but the number may even be high,” he said.

In a statement, ASP Jalige Mohammed, Police Public Relations Officer, said a joint team of the Nigeria Police, Army and Navy Operatives upon receiving the distress call gave the bandits a hot pursuit occasioned by a tactical application of weapons and succeeded in rescuing twenty six (26) students and a female teacher safely.
