Some gunmen who are suspected to be bandits have invaded a Junior Secondary School in Yebu community of the Kwali Area Council, Abuja, and abducted the Vice Principal, Mr Mohammed Nuhu, according to SaharaReporters.
According to Daily Trust, a teacher of the school, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said kidnappers wielding sophisticated weapons attacked the staff quarters of the school.
He said some of the criminals barricaded the quarters, while other gangs scaled the fence into the compound from where they broke into his apartment and whisked him away.
He said the kidnappers tied down the security guard manning the gate before they forced the victim’s door open.
“In fact, even some teachers that are staying inside the quarters could not be able to come out because of the sporadic gun shots” he said.
The incident happened on Saturday night, three days before the attack on the University of Abuja staff quarters in the Giri area.
The chairman of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) wing of the Nigeria Union Teachers (NUT), Comrade Stephen Knabayi, confirmed the abduction of the vice principal to Daily Trust.
He said the incident happened a few days after the Chief Imam of Yabgoji Central Mosque, Abubakar Abdullahi Gbedako, who is also the vice principal of Junior Secondary School, Kwaita, still in Kwali area council, was abducted.
Knabayi said the union had written several mails to the FCT Administration and some area council chairmen to complain over incessant abduction of its members.
When contacted, spokesperson of the FCT police command, DSP Adeh Josephine, said she was currently in a meeting.
She promised to call our reporter back after the meeting but had not done so as of the time of this report.
