Just In: Bandits kidnap a large number of pupils from Bethel School in Kaduna

Suspected bandits raided Bethel Secondary School in Kaduna State’s Maramara Chickun Local Government Area on Monday morning and kidnapped hundreds of children.

Bethel Secondary School is a boarding school on Kaduna’s outskirts.

“I survived narrowly,” said Mr. Daniel Muhuta, a security worker at the school. They arrived around 1 a.m. and began shooting. I was in the back of the school dormitory when I heard gunshots and decided to investigate.”

As of the time of writing, security forces had blocked off the area, even as parents and relatives of the kidnapped children gathered in a somber atmosphere at the main gate.

Kaduna State Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Mohammed Jalige did not pick his calls and did not respond to text messages sent to him.
