Armed bandits were said to have invaded the school in the early hours of September 1 and took over Seventy (70) students away to a hidden location. Then they demanded a ransom to release the pupils.
The rest of the students have now been released after 12 days in captivity.
It is not clear if any ransom was paid to secure their release as that wasn't included in the report.
The hope that this new trend of bands kidnapping school children will be a thing of the past. It is appalling and should be condemned.
The same energy used to hunt down Igboho and Kanu should be used to hunt down these bandits.
