Gunmen Abduct Mission School Students In Plateau

Four students of Capro Secondary Mission School located at Gana Ropp in Barkin Ladi Local Government Area of Plateau State were abducted in the early hours of Thursday.

However, three of the students have escaped, while one is still in captivity.

According to a report by Channels Television, the school is an arm of Calvary Ministries, arguably the most renowned mission movement in the country.

The Capro school is few kilometres away from the Yakubu Gowon airport, Heipang, and about 60 kilometres from Jos, the state capital.

A global mission leader and President of Para-Mallam Peace Foundation, Reverend Gideon Para-Mallam confirmed that the attackers broke the rear fence of the school where a hole was drilled to gain access into the school compound and abducted the students.

He further stated that the intervention of security agencies prevented what could have been another mass abduction as the assailants took to their heels after realising the reinforcement of security in the area.

Three of the students escaped as the abductors fled.

The Plateau State Police Command is yet to make any statement on the incident as community efforts are ongoing to secure the release of the abducted student still in captivity.

The latest abduction follows the string of abductions of students from schools in Northern Nigeria.
GreenWhiteGreen GWG reports that following the mass abduction of 279 students from a Government Girls Secondary School, Jangabe in Zamfara State, that President Muhammadu Buhari had pledged that such incidents would not happen again.

However, the bandits have repeatedly defiled him going to the extent of going to higher institutions and abducting students there.

Five of those abducted from a private university, Greenfield University by the rebels were killed within three days to bring pressure on the government. Several others are also being held in custody of the bandits.

The abduction of the CAPRO students is, however, the first reported abduction on the Plateau.
