According to Channels, five persons have been reported missing after gunmen stormed Government Girls Secondary School Moriki, Zurmi Local Government Area (LGA) of Zamfara.
The armed men were said to have entered the school through the back fence on Wednesday with an intention to attack the school and abduct students.
Confirming the incident, the Police Public Relations officer, SP Mohammed Shehu, in a statement on Thursday said, “On the spur of the moment, a combined team of PMF/CTU/ and Civilian JTF personnel headed by the DPO mobilised to the school who confronted the armed men and stopped them from gaining access to the students hostels, took a retreat back to the bush”.
Earlier reports had circulated that the unidentified gunmen had abducted students but this isn’t the case. Only two caterers and three of their children were discovered missing.
