Bandits attack Zamfara school, kidnap up to 300 female students


Reports from local Nigeria media say at least 300 girls have been abducted by suspected armed bandits from a school hostel in northwest Nigeria’s Zamfara.

The incident would be the latest mass kidnapping by heavily-armed criminal gangs in the northwest and central Nigeria has increased in recent years.

A spokesman for the state governor confirmed the kidnapping, but declined to say how many people were taken or provide further details.

“More than 300 girls are unaccounted for after a headcount of remaining students,” a teacher at the Government Girls Secondary School Jangebe, who asked to remain anonymous, said. 

A man whose two daughters attend the school corroborated the teacher’s accounts. Sadi Kawaye said he had been told that the school was “invaded by bandits”.
