The spokesman of Kaduna state police command, Mohammed Jalige, said the bandits invaded the school around 3.00am on Friday and abducted some students.
“The bandits invaded the school at about 3:00am this morning and abducted some students.
I can’t say how many students , we have no details of the number of students and I can’t say if they are all female,” Jalige said in a telephone interview.
According to the BBC, a witness said half of the female students were taken, but not a single male was abducted.
