Just In: Gunmen abduct another set of students in Zamfara

Gunmen suspected to be armed bandits have attacked the College of Agriculture and Animal Science, in Bakura local government area of Zamfara State.

According to sources, the bandits stormed the institution around 11 pm on Sunday and kidnapped an unspecified number of students and staff of the college.

The gunmen also reportedly killed a security personnel and two watchmen.

The State’s Police Command’s Public Relations Officer, SP Mohammed Shehu, confirmed the incident, adding that the Command will soon release a statement concerning the situation.

This is not the first time that the school is being attacked by bandits.

Recall that in July, the Provost of the school was kidnapped from his official residence in the institution.

The bandits demanded a ransom of N5 million from his family with negotiations commencing for his release. But his brother, Nasiru Mainasara, said prominent members of the community told the family to stop the negotiation and assured them that he will be rescued safely.

He was eventually released after three days in captivity.
