Militants Kidnap 6 Students in Lagos.
Suspected Militants had attacked the Lagos State Model College in Igbonla, Epe on Thursday abducting six male students from the School Hostel…
According to Sahara Reporters, the kidnappers had written to the school, informing the authorities of their plan to strike earlier this week.
The school management promptly notified the Nigerian Police, which sent its men to take strategic positions around the school.
However, the Police were overwhelmed by the number of militants and the sophisticated weapons they carried. The kidnappers are believed to be Niger Delta militants, who have been involved in a variety of criminal activities in the area.
Last October, kidnappers attacked the same school seizing four students, two members of staff, including a Vice Principal.
