Gunmen abduct students, teachers from school in SW Nigeria

 

The incident occurred on Friday evening when some unidentified gunmen gained entrance through the back fence of the Turkish Tulip International School, located in the Isheri area of Ogun State and took the students and teachers away at gunpoint on the school premises, said Ogun police spokesman AbimbolaOyeyemi on Saturday.

"We have deployed police operatives and are making serious efforts to release the victims unhurt and bring the culprits to book," Oyeyemi further said, adding that the kidnappers had not made any contact with police or school authorities so far and no arrest has been made.

Other reports maintained that the kidnappers came in a white Hilux pickup and fled through a swamp.

No group or individual has yet claimed responsibility for the abductions, but it is likely for the TakfiriBoko Haram terrorist group, which is active in the northern parts of Nigeria, to have been involved in the raid.
