Angry parents of abducted students of Bethel Secondary School in Maramara, Chickun LGA of Kaduna state have chased away govt officials led by the state’s Commissioner for Internal Security, Samuel Aruwan.
It was gathered that Aruwan and the government officials had come to express sympathy over the abduction of their children.
Recall that bandits on Monday morning invaded Bethel Secondary School in Maramara Chickun LGA of Kaduna State and abducted scores of students.
The affected secondary school is a boarding school located on the outskirts of Kaduna.
Two soldiers were also said to have been killed as they engaged the bandits in a shootout.
The security guard in the school, Daniel Muhuta, while speaking on the development said, “I escaped narrowly. They came around 1.00 am and started shooting. I was at the back of the school domentary when I heard shooting and decided to pin down.”
About 26 of the abducted students have reportedly been rescued by the police.
The bandits later contacted the school management where they disclosed that they have 121 students in their custody.
They however assured the school that the abducted students are in good health and not to worry.
The incident is the second abduction in the state within the last 24 hours.
The development comes just hours after bandits abducted babies, female nurses and security guards from the residential quarters of the National Tuberculosis and Leprosy Centre (NTLC) in Zaria, on Sunday.
In a trending video seen by SaharaReporters, Aruwan, who is the commissioner in charge of internal security was chased away by some parents of the abducted students during a visit to the school few hours after the attack.
The commissioner was forced back into his official car as the parents rained abuses and curses on him and the Nasir El-Rufai-led state government.
“Go home! Go home! We don’t want you here, Go back, we don’t want to see here,” they were heard shouting in the video.
