A teacher who pleaded for anonymity told Daily Trust that Out of 600 students of Government Girls Secondary School, Jangebe, in Talata Mafara Local Government Area of Zamfara State, about 50 were left behind,

 

Gunmen had stormed the school in the early hours of Friday, abducting many students.

 

The teacher said parents of the students, who escaped the abduction, came as early as 5: am to take away their daughters, adding that some mothers of kidnapped girls were slumping on the school premises.

 

“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,” he said.
