Kidnapped

According to Punch reports, the gunmen stormed the school at about 8.30 pm on Monday, February 29, and seized the children.

The Commissioner of Police in Lagos State, Fatai Owoseni, and an Assistant Inspector-General of Police, B. Hassan, confirmed the incident and are holding a closed-door meeting with the parents of the abducted students.

Punch also reported that senior police officers are currently investigating the incident and inspecting the school premises. The abductors reportedly got access into the school through a broken fence.

A helicopter search of the school vicinity is also being conducted in the hopes of finding the kidnapped students.

Although, official reports revealed that 3 students were taken, it has been rumoured that the number of victims could be more than that.

Reacting to the tragic incident, parents of school students have stormed the school premises as they lament the abduction.

One of the parents, Mrs Atolagbe, said, "There has been nothing of sort in the school in the past. The devil is a liar. We shall triumph.”

A lot of the parents have accused the school of not providing adequate security for its students. Angry parents who besieged the school said the authorities concentrated security at the entrance of the school while there was none within the hostel area. Another parent vowed that her child will no longer be sleeping in the hostel in the wake of the kidnap.
