Gunmen, on Wednesday, invaded the Government Day Secondary School, Kaya, in the Maradun Local Government Area of Zamfara State and abducted no fewer than 73 students.
It was gathered that the attack, which came barely five days after some students of the College of Agriculture and Animals Science, Bakura, were released, occurred around 11am when the students were sitting their examinations.
As of the time the gunmen were attacking the Kaya school, the State Governor, Bello Matawalle, was attending a prayer session organised by his administration, where he called on the residents of the state to rise up and fight the bandits back.
In its reaction to the latest incident, the Arewa Consultative Forum expressed sadness over the attack and abduction of the students.
Although residents of the community said 76 students were taken away by the bandits, the police confirmed the abduction of 73 from the school in the Maradun Local Government Area, where the governor hails from.
It was learnt that the students were in their classrooms when the gunmen stormed the school and asked them to march out.
Findings indicated that some of the students managed to escape as the gunmen were taking their colleagues away.
