Armed individuals took away about 287 school kids in Nigeria last week. They asked for a huge amount of money, one billion naira, and warned that they would harm the children if they didn’t receive the money within three weeks. The kidnappers claimed they were retaliating against the government and security forces for their actions against their group.

The community member, Aminu Jibril, shared this information with CNN, saying he was contacted by the kidnappers demanding the ransom. He believes the kidnappers might have gotten his contact from the head of the school’s junior section, who was also taken.

Over 300 students were taken by armed bandits who stormed the LEA Primary and Secondary School in Kaduna’s Chikun district. Sadly, during the attack, a community member who tried to stop the abductors was killed.

The governor of Kaduna, Uba Sani, assured that they are working hard to bring back the children safely. Kaduna state has been facing a lot of kidnapping incidents in recent times, especially in the area where this school is located.

Last year, armed men kidnapped around 140 students from a private secondary school, and earlier, about 20 students from a university were also taken. Tragically, some of those students were killed when the ransom was not paid.
