There are hundreds of girls are missing after a raid by suspected armed bandits on a school hostel in Zamfara, northwest Nigeria. According to the teacher at the Government Girls Secondary School Jangebe, “More than 300 girls are unaccounted for after a headcount of remaining students.”
“I’m on my way to Jangebe. I received a call that the school was invaded by bandits who took away schoolgirls. I have two daughters in the school,” said Sadi Kawaye.
Last week, 42 people were taken by a gang from a school in nearby Niger state. More than 300 boys were kidnapped from a school in December in Kankara.
