Bandits invade Zamfara College, abduct students

By NWANKWO, Grace Chinasa

Five students from the College of Health Science and Technology have been reportedly abducted in the early hours of Wednesday, 13th April, 2022, in Tsafe area of Zamfara state.

The bandits invaded the residence of the students – a private hostel situated outside the school campus.

A source in the area disclosed that the bandits could not gain entrance to the school due to the heavy presence of security personnel. The source, however, said one of the victims escaped from the abductors.

“It is confirmed. The students were abducted at the outskirt of the town in their residence,” Mohammed Shehu, Spokesman of the command said.

“One of them escaped, remaining four students. The police in collaboration with sister agencies have commenced a search and rescue mission to get the students back,” he added.

Shehu added that the bandits are yet to call anyone to discuss ransom.

In 2021, scores of students were abducted in the northern part of the country despite efforts of the state governments and security agencies to curtail this destructive attack. As part of efforts to curb the menace, schools were shut down in some of the affected states.
