Nigeria kidnapping: ‘Hundreds’ of boys stolen by gunmen dressed as soldiers in 3am raid | World | News

Armed men raided the Government Science College this morning in Kagara, Niger state. Ibrahim Matane, secretary to Niger state government, said “bandits” wearing military uniforms stormed the school.

The gunmen overwhelmed security guards in order to kidnap the children.

This recent kidnapping spat comes just two months after Islamist terror faction Boko Haram took more than 300 boys from a boarding school in the Katsina state.

Luckily the children were freed after a week of being moved around a forest to hide from authorities.

The terrorist group said they kidnapped the boys in order to “discourage the un-Islamic practices of Western education”.
