Some female students of Zamfara College of Health Technology, Tsafe, have been abducted.
A lecturer of the institution who spoke off the record, confirmed this to Daily Trust on Wednesday morning.
He said the kidnappers abducted the students from their hostel, which is outside the school campus.
It is unclear the number of students who were kidnapped, but a source told Daily Trust that the gunmen whisked away five persons.
The incident comes a week after the son of Mamman Tsafe, a Commissioner in the government of Governor Bello Matawalle, was gunned down in front of his father’s residence in Tsafe.
There have been similar attacks in the country, especially in the North West.
On Tuesday night, the Northern Elders’ Forum (NEF) asked President Muhammadu Buhari to resign over rising insecurity in the country.
The presidency is yet to comment on the demand of the well respected group.
