ZAMFARA: Terrorists invade Tsafe health college, abduct five female students

TERRORISTS, today, invaded a residential area in Tsafe town and abducted five students of the College of Health Science and Technology, Tsafe.

One of them escaped from the abductors.

The Provost of the College, Yusuf Idris, who confirmed the incident, said the student sustained injuries and is receiving medical attention at the Tsafe General Hospital.

He said the abductors have contacted one of the victim’s mother, threatening to marry her if the ransom is not paid.

Yusuf, however, appealed to the parents of the kidnapped students to remain calm as the school authority and security agencies are working round the clock to ensure the safe return of the students.

A source in the area, who narrated the incident, told Channels Television that the students were abducted when heavily armed men stormed their residence outside the school campus.

He said the bandits could not gain entrance to the school due to the heavy presence of security personnel.
