Bandits have abducted five students of the College of Health Science and Technology in Tsafe Local Government Area of Zamfara state.

The students were reportedly abducted in the early hours of Wednesday.
According to reports, the bandits invaded the residence of the students –
a private hostel – situated outside the school campus.


Abduction of students was rife in the northern part of the country’
especially in 2021.

From Niger, Kebbi to Kaduna, Zamfara, Plateau, scores of students were
abducted despite efforts of the state governments and security agencies
to curtail the onslaughts.

Some of the students were later released by the bandits after
negotiations.

As part of efforts to curb the menace, schools were closed down in some
of the affected states.

Residents have also not been spared from the attacks.
