Gunmen have abducted female students of the Federal College of Forestry Mechanism in the Mando area of Kaduna.
According to the BBC, a witness said half of the female students were taken, but not a single male was abducted.
Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, has confirmed the incident, saying an investigation is ongoing.
The Kaduna State Police Command’s Public Relations Officer, Mohammed Jalige, ASP, confirmed the attack, noting that it took place last night.
This is coming barely less than 48 hours after the State Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Mr. Samuel Aruwan, presented the 2020 security situation reports to the state governor, Malam Nasir El-Rufai.
In that report, the commissioner had said bandits killed no fewer than 937 persons, kidnapped 1,972 persons, and rustled 7,195 cattle in the state in 2020.
During the event, Governor Nasir El-Rufai insisted that his administration would not negotiate or grant amnesty to bandits
