Bandits attack Zamfara School, abduct several students


Bandits have again abducted a yet-to-be ascertained number of students during an attack on Kaya Day Secondary School in Zamfara State.

The bandits were said to have invaded the Maradun Local Government Area of the state at about 11am on Wednesday.

According to reports, the assailants invaded the school about 11am on Wednesday in a large number and left with the students to an undisclosed location.

However, police authorities in the state are yet to confirm the incident.

This is the third attack on schools in Zamfara this year coming after the incidents in Jangebe and Bakura areas of the state.

Bandits have continued to terrorise communities in Zamfara, a disturbing trend that made the government announce a set of new measures to check their growing activities in the state.

Earlier in the week, the government announced several restrictions and new laws in a bid to tackle the menace of banditry.
