Scores of students of the Federal Government College, Birnin Yauri in Kebbi State have been abducted by bandits.

The heavily armed bandits invaded the school on Thursday.

Sources said undisclosed  number of girls were abducted by the bandits who dressed in police camouflage.

The sources claimed that the bandits who were too many engaged  the  mobile police in a gun battle. The policemen fought hard to repel the  attack but were overpowered.

The source further explained that shortly  after the gun duel, the bandits broke into the  school where they took their time  to select girls and made away with them to an undisclose location.

No one was however killed during the hours of operation  by the armed bandits  but a police officer was  shot during the  exchange of fire.

However, scores of bandits in a recent series of attacks on innocent civilians sacked koliyo a Yauri suburb where they also carted away huge number of cows and other valuables.

The unchallenged attack forced residents of the village to flee leaving a ghost town behind.

An elderly woman who ran to Birnin Kebbi said the bandits targeted women and farmers forcing them to desert their farms for the safety of their lives.

She  added that the  now ghost village  lost large  sum of money in valaulables.
