Three of the victims abducted from the Zamfara College of Agriculture and Animal Science Bakura have escaped.
Deputy Provost of the College, Ali Atiku, disclosed this in a chat with reporters on Monday.
He said two staff and one student escaped from the bandits after they kidnapped them and returned to the school.
The college registrar, Aliyu Bakura, had earlier confirmed that suspected armed bandits invaded the school premises on Sunday with sophisticated weapons and abducted 15 students, a teacher and his wife.
The Zamfara State Police Command is yet to give an update on the attack.
