The abduction which happened in the early hours of Friday was carried out by suspected bandits who stormed the school in Hilux vehicles and motorcycles.

 

The attack happened just days after some students and staff of Government Science College, Kagara in Rafi Local Government of Niger State were abducted by bandits who are yet to set them free.

It would be recalled that on December 11, 2020, over 300 students of Government Science Secondary School, Kankara in Katsina State were abducted by bandits who have since released them.

Reacting to the strings of abductions of students in the north, Amnesty International stated on Twitter that Education is under attack in the region.

 

“Amnesty International condemns this appalling attack, which is the latest in a string of attacks on schools in northern Nigeria. Attacks on schools and abductions of girls are war crimes.

 

“Education is under attack in northern Nigeria. Schools should be places of safety, and no child should have to choose between their education and their life. Other children have had to abandon their education after being displaced by frequent violent attacks on their communities.”
