Hours after bandits killed a student and kidnapped eight others with two lecturers at Nuhu Bamalli Polytechnic in Zaria, security agents have foiled attempted abduction of students at Prelude Comprehensive College in Kujama area of Chikun local government Kaduna State.
Kaduna Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, who confirmed the incident in the private secondary school, said the bandits resorted to kidnapping other citizens on the Kaduna-Kachia road.
According to him: “Security reported to the Kaduna State Government that a planned abduction by armed bandits at a school (Prelude Comprehensive College) in Kujama area of Chikun LGA has been foiled.
“This followed receipt of credible intelligence, which prompted troops and Police operatives to mobilize to the targeted school to thwart the approaching bandits.
