Gunmen raid Kaduna school, abduct students


Gunmen have abducted an unspecified number of students of the Federal College of Forestry Mechanisation in Mando, Igabi Local Government Area of Kaduna State.

It was learnt that the gunmen attacked the school on Friday morning.

Kaduna State commissioner for internal security and home affairs Samuel Aruwan has confirmed the incident.

The college is located close to the Kaduna International Airport where gunmen recently abducted some workers of the Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria.

Kaduna police spokesman Muhammad Jalige said the attack happened at about 3am on Friday.

“Yes, students were kidnapped but we don’t have the exact number of students kidnapped,” he told NAN.

Jalige added that security forces were working to trace the kidnappers and rescue the students.
