TheCable has obtained exclusive pictures of a student and other children that were abducted from the staff quarters of Government Science College, Kagara, Niger state.

During a visit to the school, parents and survivors told TheCable of how the bandits operated with no resistance from security agencies.

They said the bandits were about 40 and arrived the school around 1am on Wednesday.

A parent who identified himself as Saheed Isa said six of his children were kidnapped during the attack.


The school premises and hostels from where the students were abducted had been deserted when TheCable visited the facility on Thursday.

Thus far, there has been no official information regarding rescue efforts.

Below are pictures of the students and others abducted — and what they left behind.
