Gunmen suspected to be militants have invaded a school in Lagos where they kidnapped the principal.
According to The Nation Newspaper, the gunmen stormed the Igbo Nla Model College in the area this morning, shooting sporadically into the air to scare away the students and residents and made straight to the office of the school head.
The heavily armed men were said to have abducted the man, forced him into a waiting boat and escaped.
In a swift response, the State Police Command has dispatched its men to the area in search of the kidnappers while no ransom demand has been made so far.
In recent times, some riverine communities in the state have come under attack by militants and kidnappers with the police and other security forces doing all they can to bring order to the areas.
Recall that on March 2, 2016, gunmen stormed the Babington Macaulay Junior Seminary School, Ikorodu, where they abducted three female students of the school owned by the Lagos Anglican Diocese.
