KATSINA, Nigeria| SHIFTMEDIA| Gunwielding thugs are back on the rampage in Nigeria.

Hundreds of boys have been reported missing in Nigeria’s northwestern Katsina state after gunmen raided their school.


The police report indicates that the gunmen armed with AK-47s, stormed the Government Science secondary school in Kankara district at about 9:40 pm local time.


The attack took place in President Muhammadu Buhari’s home state, and police and the military were still working to determine how many were kidnapped and missing.

The government has said that the military had located the gunmen and are being pursued.

In 2018, the Boko Haram armed group kidnapped more than 100 girls in the northeastern Nigerian town of Dapchi. And six years ago, in 2014, the same group abducted more than 270 girls in the town of Chibok.
