TheCable had reported how a number of students and teachers were kidnapped when gunmen attacked the school on June 17.

The gunmen invaded the school on motorcycles and engaged police officers in a crossfire — wounding some of the students while one died in the process.

However, three days later, the Nigerian Army in a surveillance operation, rescued three of the students.

To date, there is no official information yet regarding the number of students abducted by the attackers who are being reported to be bandits terrorising communities in the north.

In recent times, schools, especially in northern Nigeria, have been targeted by gunmen.
