A resident in Kawaye village identified as Seidu Muhammadu who confirmed the development to Basehitz said his daughters, Mansura and Sakina were among those abducted.
“I’m on my way to Jangebe now to see the situation myself. I was told they invaded the school around 1am,” he said.
The spokesman for the state police command command, SP Muhammad Shehu, told reporters: “Give me some time, I can’t say anything now.”
The Zamfara incident comes a week after gunmen struck the Government Secondary School in Kagara, Niger State, abducting 47 school pupils, teachers and workers, who have yet to be rescued as of Friday.
