BANDITS have killed four and kidnapped over 15 students and teachers at College of Agriculture and Animal Health in Bakura, Zamfara State.
Deputy registrar of the college, Aliyu Bakura said, the raid occurred last night.
“Last Sunday night, around 10pm, they entered and opened fire and took away 15 students and a teacher and his wife and two children,” he said.
Aliyu also said the gunmen were large in number, adding that they climbed the school fence and opened fire within the premises for close to two hours.
This is not the first time bandits abducted students from schools in Zamfara. On February 26, bandits invaded Government Girls Science Secondary School, Jangebe, Zamfara State, and abducted many female students but were later released after spending weeks in custody.
In recent times, the northern part of the country has witnessed a series of abductions of schoolchildren, a development that has led to the closure of many schools in the region.
