Insecurity: Again, Bandits abduct many students in Tegina, Niger State

Few months after the abduction of Kagara College students in Niger State, armed Bandits have again abducted some students of an Islamic school in Tegina town, in Rafi local government area of Niger State.

It was gathered that the bandits stormed the Islamiyya school, located in Tegina town, around 4.30 pm when the students were receiving lessons.

Tegina is the hometown of the local government chairperson, Isma’il Moddibo. It is in the same local government area with Kagara where bandits earlier this year abducted many students but later released them after negotiation with the State government.

According to a resident of the area, the Islamiyya school where the students were abducted, known as Salihu Tanko Islamiyya school, was built by a retired Immigration Officer.

Although the number of students kidnapped could not be ascertained as at press time, according to some reports, they were no fewer than two hundred. However, it was gathered that one person was killed and one of the students was critically injured during the attack.

Also, at the time of filing this report, there was no statement from the State’s Police Command or the State government.
