Gunmen Kidnap 6 Students in Lagos State, South-West Nigeria

Six students of Igbonla Model College in Epe Local Government Area, an outskirt of Lagos State, South-West Nigeria have been reportedly abducted by daredevil gunmen.

The kidnappers came to the school in the early hours when the students gathered for the morning assembly.

The kidnappers also reportedly abducted the principal of the junior secondary school, Mr. Oyesola and Mr. Akirinmade who is the Principal of the senior secondary school, with some students.

 The case was presented to the House of Representatives by the member representing Epe Constituency, Wale Raji on Thursday.

He appealed to the House to call on the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris and the Commissioner of Police in Lagos State, to treat the case with utmost urgency.

The House suspended other proceedings to attend to the matter and asked the police to mobilise and rescue the principals and students, PUNCH reports.

This is the second time kidnappers will be attacking the school.

In October 2016, two teachers and four students of the college were abducted by gunmen who demanded N20 million per head as ransom.

They were released after the ransom was paid.
