Gunmen suspected to be bandits have abducted many students of Islamiyya school in Mahuta town, Dandume Local Government Area of Katsina State.
The attack came a few days after gunmen invaded Government Science Secondary School, Kankara, kidnapping 344 students.
According to Katsina Post, the Islamic students were abducted on their way home after they graced a maulud procession at Unguwar Al-Kasim, a nearby village.
According to Sahara Reporters,
the actual number of the abducted students is yet to be known, but the vigilante groups in the community have already begun a rescue operation.
Katsina State Police Command Public Relations Officer, Gambo Isah, said he was out of the state on an official assignment and could not comment on the issue.
