According to a local news website, Katsina Post, the unidentified gunmen abducted students of Islamiyya school in Mahuta town, Dandume Local Government Area of Katsina State.
According to sources, the Islamic students were abducted on their way home after they graced a maulud procession at Unguwar Al-Kasim, a nearby village.
The actual number of the abducted students is yet to be known, but the vigilante groups in the community have already begun a rescue operation.
When contacted, the Katsina State Police Command Public Relations Officer, Gambo Isah, said he was out of the state on an official assessment and could not comment on the issue.
