One Abducted As Unknown Gunmen Invade Abuja Schoo

Unknown gunmen have kidnapped one person during an attack on a Secondary School in Yebu, Kwali Area Council of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

It was learned that the gunmen invaded the staff quarters of the school on Saturday night and abducted the Vice Principal of the school, Mohammed Nuhu.

Speaking with Daily Trust, a teacher in the school said some of the gunmen surrounded the quarters, while others scaled the fence into the compound.

The source said the kidnappers tied down the security guard before they broke into the apartment of the vice-principal and whisked him away.

The teacher stated that some teachers that are staying inside the quarters could not be able to come out because of the sporadic gunshots.

Meanwhile, the Federal Government has deployed soldiers and other security operatives to strategic locations in the FCT over reports of an impending terrorist attack.

According to the Nigerian military, it got some security reports on Tuesday evening that some terrorists were planning to attack the FCT.

Daily Sun reports that the military said the insurgents are planning to enter the FCT through the Abuja-Keffi expressway and other entry points.

The report further disclosed that the soldiers have mounted roadblocks at all entry and exit points into the FCT, and are conducting stop and search operations on specific vehicles and passengers.

The roadblocks were mounted by soldiers of the Guards Brigade, who are responsible for the security of the President, his immediate family, VIPs, as well as the FCT and its environs.

The operation, which began midnight Tuesday, is said to have led to the arrest of some suspects who are now assisting the security operatives with useful information.
