Police confirm abduction of Kebbi School students, killing of officer


The Police Command in Kebbi State has confirmed the abduction of some students of Federal Government College, Birnin Yauri and the killing of a policeman during the attack.

Saga Gist had reported that armed bandits on Thursday invaded the Federal Government College, Birnin Yauri, Kebbis State, and abducted a yet to be specified number of female students.

In his confirmation of the incident, Mr Adeleke Adeyinka-Bode, the Commissioner of Police in the state, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the number of students abducted is not known yet.

“The truth is that the attack took place and five teachers have been taken away, four male and one female, but the number of students abducted is not known yet.

“The attack took place around 12pm and during the crossfire between police and the bandits, some students were injured and one police officer was also injured and another was killed. These are the facts I can give to you,” he said.

The police commissioner said the school principal who should provide details of the number of students abducted was still in shock.

“The Principal is not in the best state of mind as I am speaking to you now, because parents have trooped into the school searching for their children.

“So the Principal cannot make a proper headcount call,” he added
