Some gunmen suspected to be Fulani herdsmen on Monday kidnapped four teachers and two children at Azagba Mixed Secondary School, Isele-Azagba.

According to The PUNCH, it was gathered that armed three men stormed the school premises in a black Sports Utility Vehicle, beat up the security men and tied them up before heading straight to the classroom where four teachers and two children, said to be of the same parents, were taken away.

Eyewitness said the gunmen shot into the air while holding their abductors, apparently to prevent any resistance.

“The children were sandwiched at the back of the SUV by some of the gang members before they drove menacingly from the school compound with the teachers.

“A bullet hit one of the teachers who is currently receiving treatment at the FMC. The kidnappers were three in numbers,” the source said.

The abducted teachers were identified as Mr Isiroro, Mr Okonta, Mr Ifeanyichukwu and the Principal of the school, Mrs Onyeje Bridget.

As of the time of filing this report, effort was still being made to reach the school management.

The state Commissioner of Police, Mr Adeyinka Adeleke, who confirmed the abduction, said, “Yes, some teachers were abducted but they have been rescued this night but one of the teachers they shut is currently at the FMC Asaba.”
