Pandemonium gripped Kuriga town in the Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State when a group of bandits invaded LEA Primary School, Kuriga (1) on Thursday, abducting dozens of pupils.

Although the exact number of abducted individuals remains unverified, local residents estimated it to be around 100.

The victims reportedly included the head teacher of the school and some other staff members.

The incident occurred at 8:20 am immediately after the morning assembly, leaving the school community in shock and distress.

It was revealed that most pupils managed to flee from their classes upon sighting the armed bandits on the school premises.

The LEA Primary School, Kuriga (1), relocated its junior and secondary sections to the town’s inner building a few years ago due to security concerns, abandoning the former school building outside the city.

A resident named Shitu confirmed the abduction, telling Daily Trust that many pupils fled their classes upon realizing the presence of bandits.

Another resident, Lawal Kuriga, mentioned that the kidnapped victims were forcefully taken into the nearby forest.

As of the time of reporting, there has been no official statement from the state government.
