Bandits on Motorcycles

No fewer than 100 pupils were abducted by bandits from the LEA Primary School, Kuriga, in the troubled Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State, on Thursday morning.

According to a source who is resident in the area, they were taken away by the bandits who stormed the town in large numbers.

It was also reported that the school’s head teacher and other staff members were among those kidnapped by the hoodlums.

As of the time of filing this report, details of kidnap remained sketchy.

Last Thursday, bandits attacked Gonin-Gora in the volatile Chikun LGA, leading villagers to barricade the Kaduna-Abuja Motorway in protest of the abduction of an unknown number of individuals.

Residents had swarmed the roadway in protest, pushing the authorities to take action against the area’s frequent bandit attacks.

The kidnappers raided the neighborhood on Wednesday night and early Thursday morning, capturing an unidentified number of residents.

The event, which occurred between 11 p.m. and 3 a.m. on Thursday, prompted people to gather to condemn what they characterized as the hoodlums’ arrogance in targeting the region.
