The Nigerian Army averted another tragedy as it foiled bandits attempt to abduct students at Government Science Secondary school in the Ikara Local Government Area of Kaduna State.
Samuel Aruwan, the Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs in the state told journalists on Sunday that bandits invaded the school on Saturday night but the timely arrival of soldiers who engaged the criminals in a gun duel saved the day.
Recounting the event, the commissioner said: “Between the late hours of Saturday night and early hours of today (Sunday), suspected bandits stormed the Government Science Secondary School Ikara in Ikara Local Government Area in an attempt to kidnap students.”
“The security forces comprising the troops of the Nigerian Army, police and some security volunteers moved swiftly to the school and engaged the bandits forcing them to flee. The military and the police are still on the trail of the armed bandits.”
Commissioner Aruwan also revealed that troops of the Nigerian Airforce foiled a similar attack by bandits at the Kaduna International airport senior staff quarters around Ifira village in the Igabi local government area.
