936 students abducted from Nigerian schools in six months

At least 936 students of secondary and tertiary institutions were abducted by suspected bandits and Boko Haram members across the country between December 2020 and June 5, 2021.

Findings by Punch correspondents showed that abductions were carried out across the country.

During the period under review, abductions were recorded in Ohordua, Edo State; Effurun, Delta State; Kankara, Kaduna State; and Mahuta village, Katsina State.

Other places where cases of abduction were recorded are Kagara, Niger State; Jangebe, Zamfara State; and Afaka, Kaduna State, among others.

Some parents who spoke to Punch correspondents said they would not allow their children return to school.

The Director of Press, Ministry of Education, Bem Goong, told Punch that the Federal Government was working hard to ensure that schools were safe. He urged state governments to also do the same.
