Attacks on schools and abductions are becoming a recurring security in Nigeria. In the latest of such attacks, three teachers were kidnapped in northern Nigeria on Monday in an attack on a primary school in Kaduna state.
Armed men invaded the school in the town of Rema, in the district of Birnin Gwari, at around 8:50 am (07:50 GMT), and “kidnapped three teachers”, according to the Kaduna government.
Apart from the three teachers, “no member of staff or student is missing,” the statement added.
The latest kidnapping is the fifth mass school abduction since December.
Gunmen abducted 39 students late on Thursday from hostels on the outskirts of Kaduna city, the state capital. On Monday, the authorities shut down their college and sent home 180 other students and staff who had been rescued.
