Niger: Terrorists have attacked a school in the Nigerian state of Niger and abducted several teachers and students.
According to a report by a foreign news agency, terrorists attacked a school in the Nigerian state of Niger, as a result of which one student was killed. Armed terrorists kidnapped several students and teachers and transferred them to an unknown location.
Nigerian President Buhari has tasked security agencies with rescuing all hostages and sent troops and police to Niger.
On the other hand, orders have been issued to close boarding schools in Nigeria.
According to the report, expressing concern over the security situation, the Senate demanded President Bahari to declare a state of emergency across the country.
“Our prayers are with the families of the victims. The President has directed the Armed Forces and the police to ensure the immediate and safe return of all the abductees,” said President Muhammadu Buhari.
It should be noted that 300 schoolboys were also abducted in December last year who were allegedly released after paying a ransom.
It may be recalled that in 2014, 276 schoolgirls were abducted by terrorists, most of whom have yet to be rescued.
