President Muhammadu Buhari has received reports of the brazen attack on Government Science College, Kagara, Rafi Local Government Area of Niger State, following which a yet to be ascertained number of staff and students have been abducted by gunmen.

Centapost  had earlier reported of the attack on the School, following which, the President has directed the Armed Forces and Police, to ensure immediate and safe return of all the captives.

A press statement sent to newsmen  by Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant to the President (Media and Publicity), says the President has also dispatched to Minna, Niger State a team of security chiefs to coordinate the rescue operation and meet with state officials, community leaders, as well as parents and staff of the College.

“Our prayers are with families of the victims of this attack,” said the President as he condemned as cowardly the attack on innocent school children.
