Inspite of the measures adopted by the Zamfara state government to checkmate the activities, the bandits have attacked a Government Day Secondary School Kaya in Maradun Local Government Area and kidnapped about 100 students.
A source in the area, Muhammad Lawal said the bandits arrived the school at around 11:00 am while the school was in session.
“Though yet to identify the actual number students abducted but we believed they would reach 100 as the school population is over 300 and significant number of students were matched to the bandits den”, he added.
According to him, people have started taking census of the missing students both male and female to ascertain the actual number abducted from the school.
According to him, tension was so high in the town as majority of the people had ran into the bush to hide.
When contacted the police spokesman, SP. Muhammad Shehu said the command was yet to have reported of the incident but promise to find out.
