Students from the Zamfara College of Health Technology in Tsafe, including some females, have been targeted for kidnapping.
An unnamed academic at the university verified this to us on Wednesday morning.
Students were taken from their dormitories outside the school’s grounds, according to him.
The number of pupils taken hostage is now unknown, however a reliable source tells us that the gunman abducted five students.
Incident occurred less than a week after the death of Mamman Tsafe’s son, Commissioner in the government of Governor Bello Matawalle.
