One of the teachers at the Government Girls Secondary School, Jangebe, in Talata Mafara Local Government Area of Zamfara State, where it was reported earlier today that some female students were kidnapped, has revealed that well over 500 students were abducted and not the 300 first reported.
Recall it was earlier reported that in the early hours of February 26, some gunmen or rather bandits invaded a Government Girls secondary school in Zamfara State and took away with them 300 students. This is different from the attack in Kagara Niger state where 27 students, 3 staffs and 12 family members were abducted, and are yet to be released nor recovered.
A teacher in the school who spoke to the media house Daily Trust, said out of the 600 students in the school about 50 of them are left behind.

He also disclosed that parents of the students who escaped the abduction came as early as 5 am to take away their daughters, adding that some mothers of the kidnapped girls were slumping on the school premises.
The teacher said;
“Initially, the school authorities prevented them from going with the remaining students but they grew angrier and began to pull down doors and windows of the buildings in the school and the school authority had to yield to their demands.
“When the gunmen laid siege, they attacked the soldiers stationed in the community before they gained entry into the school.
“Some people told us that they stationed vehicles at the outskirts of the school.
“Security operatives and the local vigilante groups are trailing the gunmen and dozens of other residents have volunteered to take part in the search.”
