Bandits Kidnap Students From Private College in Kaduna
Bandits have abducted an unspecified number of students from a private college, Bethel Baptist School in Maraban Rido, Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State, reports say.
They invaded the school around 2am on July 5, 2021, and started shooting sporadically into the air before kidnapping the students, some locals confirmed.
Four of the students escaped while the rest were taken away by the bandits to an unknown destination.
The latest abduction comes just hours after gunmen abducted babies from the residential quarters of the National Tuberculosis and Leprosy Center in Zaria, Kaduna State.
Like most states in the north, Kaduna is dealing with a spate of kidnappings targeting schools.
Recall that Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, last week withdrew his son from a public school, in the face of a wave of abduction for ransom targeting schools, since the turn of the year.
