More than 100 students and some teachers of the Government Science College (GSC) Kagara, Niger State, the former school of Senator Shehu Sani, have been kidnapped by bandits who invaded the school on Tuesday night.

The armed bandits reportedly stormed the school in military uniforms and shot sporadically before abducting the victims.

Reacting to the invasion of his alma mata by the bandits, Sen Sani, a former Kaduna Central Senator who took to his Twitter account on Wednesday to condemn the attack, called on the state government and security agencies to do everything possible to rescue the abducted students and apprehend the criminals.

In the tweet, Sani said the school principal called to inform him that some bandits had invaded the school and abducted the students and some teachers.
