JUST IN: Gunmen Abduct Two Students In Plateau

Two students of the Calvary International Ministry (CAPRO) in Barkin Ladi Local Government Area of Plateau State have been abducted by unknown gunmen.

It was gathered that the gunmen invaded the school, close to the Yakubu Gowon International Airport Haipang, on Wednesday night.

However, the gunmen failed to abduct more students after a gun duel with security agencies who forced the attackers to flee with two of the students.

Some of the students were asleep, while those awake noticed strange moves and quickly alerted security agencies who responded swiftly.

According to The Nation, one of the abducted students later escaped during a gun duel between security personnel and the abductors.

CAPRO is an international interdenominational Mission Agency with over 700 missionaries from 26 countries operating in 35 countries in North and sub-Saharan Africa.

The school management is yet to issue an official statement on the incident but Plateau Police spokesperson, ASP Gabriel Ubah, confirmed the development.
