Gunmen have invaded the Nuhu Bamali Polytechnic, Kaduna and abducted a yet to be ascertained number of students and lecturers of the institution.
At least one person was shot, as the kidnappers shot sporadically to scare their victims.
According to multiple sources,, the gunmen attacked the institution located along Zaria-Kaduna Expressway on Thursday night.
The Public Relations Officer of the institution, Abdallah Shehu, on Friday confirmed the incident to newsmen but did not go into details.
Several people were said to have sustained different degrees of injuries as the kidnappers shot sporadically to scare their victims.
Although the number and identities of the abducted students are yet to be confirmed, a source gave the name of the abducted lecturers as Mr. Habila Nasai from General Studies Department and Mr. Adamu Shehu Shika from Accounting Department.
The attack is the latest in a series of abductions of students and pupils by bandits operating in the state.
There have been similar attacks on schools in Kaduna with the abduction of students at Federal College of Forestry and Mechanisation, as well as the Greenfield University.
