The community is located along the Kaduna Birnin-Gwari Road which has been terrorised by bandits for many years.

The police authorities and the Kaduna State government are yet to confirm the incident but a local source told Channels Television that the bandits invaded the school at 8:30 am on Thursday, and took away many pupils including the head teacher.

He said that many students sustained injuries as they attempted to flee the school on sighting the bandits.

Bandit attacks in the North-West part of the country have been on the increase in recent times, with residents taking to the streets to protest the ugly trend.

On Tuesday, residents of the Kankara Local Government Area in Katsina State embarked on yet another protest over the incessant bandit attacks in their community.

The abduction of schoolchildren in Nigeria has reached an alarming rate with insurgents profiting from the menace, as they collect ransom to the tune of hundreds of millions to release abducted children.
