A group of terrorists in the early hours of Wednesday stormed Government Science College Kagara in Niger State, Northwest Nigeria, and subsequently abducted an unknown number of students and staff members.
Kagara is the headquarters of the Rafi Local Government Area.
This incident comes days after armed fighters intercepted a bus and abducted 21 passengers near Zungeru in the Yakila District of Rafi.
They were travelling in the Niger State Government-owned transport authority vehicle on Feb. 14.
In a video shared online, the passengers are surrounded by fighters armed with AK pattern rifles and at least one rocket-propelled grenade.
In Dec. 2020, hundreds of schoolboys were kidnapped in Kankara town of Katsina state and were released days later after negotiations and ransom payment.
