On Friday, Police official from Afaka inform that on late Thursday night,latest abduction took place at the Federal College of Forestry Mechanization, in the Igabi local government area of Kaduna state. For your information let us share that in this kidnapping not only students but several teachers were also kidnapped.
In a official statement from the state's commissioner for International Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan said that “About 30 students, a mix of males and females, are yet to be accounted for,”. Aruwan said the attack was carried out by a large group of “armed bandits,” adding that the military engaged the attackers and were able to take 180 staff and students to safety. An unspecified number of the students were injured and are receiving medical attention at a military facility. Security forces "are conducting an operation to track the missing students,”.
However, here it is to be noted that Nigerian authorities also said that “bandits” were behind the earlier abduction of 279 schoolgirls late last month in the northwest, referring to the groups of armed men who kidnap for money or to press for the release of jailed members of their groups. Those girls were later freed following negotiations with the government, and it is not known whether a ransom was paid. The Islamic extremist group Boko Haram is also known to kidnap young women and force them into marriage, most notably the 2014 attack on the Chibok secondary school in Borno state.
