Two persons are said to have lost their lives after bandits invaded Bethel Baptist School, a private college in Kaduna State, kidnapping an unspecified number of students.
The kidnappers in the early hours of Monday attacked the private school located at Maraban Rido within the Chikun Local Government Area of the state.
Sources say the marauders came in gun blazing, shooting sporadically into the air before whisking the students away.
Four of the students are said to have escaped while the rest were taken away by the gunmen to an unknown destination.
This latest kidnap incident comes barely one day after gunmen suspected to be kidnappers attacked the National Tuberculosis and Leprosy Centre in Zaria, Kaduna state, abducting no fewer than seven people including nursing mothers.
The incident was said to have happened in the early hours of Sunday when the bandits invaded the centre and started shooting sporadically.
Among those kidnapped were seven staff of the centre (two male and five female) and two others who are non-staff.
The gunmen also attacked the Saye Divisional Police Headquarters also in Zaria and damaged a patrol vehicle with bullets.
Although the police authorities are yet to confirm the incident, sources from the area told Channels Television that the gunmen in large numbers had invaded Saye village, blocked the bridge leading to the Leprosy centre, while some others attacked the Saye Divisional police Headquarters, in an attempt to prevent the operatives from foiling the operation.
