Armed Bandits, killed one mobile policeman, abducted four teachers and several students after invading Federal Government Collage Birnin Yauri in Kebbi State
The gunmen who struck at Federal Government College, Birnin Yauri in Kebbi State, conveyed their victims in a bus belonging to a parent.
The school came under attack on Thursday and students and staff were abducted.
A teacher, who did not want to be named, said that prior to the attack, they had received information on a plan to invade Birnin Yauri community. He said to prevent an attack on the school, a detachment of mobile policemen were deployed last week.
The teacher said when the bandits finally struck, the security operatives engaged them in a shootout but they were overpowered.
He said after abducting the victims, the bandits used a bus belonging to the parent of the student who came to the school to pick his son who was to write JAMB on Saturday, to evacuate the victims.
He said in the confusion that ensued after the attack, the school authorities were unable to conduct a headcount to ascertain the number of the abducted students.
“All I can tell you now, is one of the policeman guarding the school was killed. Many of our students, both male and female, were abducted by the bandits. It is a co-education school, you know it is a Federal Government College.
“Three or four teachers of the college were abducted. Out of the abductees, there is a Vice Principal and a female teacher. Two students, a male and female, were said to have been shot by the bandits. The boy was shot on the buttocks while the girl sustained a gunshot injury on her arm.”
The spokesperson of the state police command, DSP Nafiu Abubakar, did not pick call placed to him and also did not respond to a text message. Abubakar later issued a statement, saying the police were in “hot pursuit” of the bandits. (Daily Trust)
