Just trying to get respite from two continuous major strikes in Niger State, bandits Saturday night invaded Government Technical College and some other communities in Kagara in Rafi local government area of Niger State taking away seven persons.
Sources that spoke with Dailytrust on the development, said armed men stormed the school on Saturday night but met the place empty.
Recall that the state government shut down all boarding schools after the abduction of students and staff of Government Science Secondary School, Kagara.
The bandits, who were said to be targeting large-scale abduction, reportedly left the school in anger and moved to a nearby community where seven persons were said to have been abducted.
“They found the school empty as students and staff have vacated following the closure of schools in the area,” the source said.
The source disclosed that the bandits abducted one Alhaji Aminu, who is the Director of Kongwama Table Water.
This is coming after the release of students and staff of Government Science College, Kagara.
After the release of the captives, bandits had raided villages in Kagara, a total of 11 persons, including seven women (among them two nursing mothers), were kidnapped while cows were rustled.
