Five students of the College of Health Science and Technology, Tsafe, Zamfara State have been abducted by bandits.
The incident happened in the early hours of Wednesday as bandits invaded a residential area outside the school campus in Tsafe.
A source told newsmen that the bandits could not gain entrance to the school due to the heavy presence of security personnel.
The source, however, said one of the students escaped from the abductors.
Police authorities in Zamfara State have confirmed the abductions.
The spokesperson of the Command, Muhammed Shehu, said the command has deployed troops to trail the bandits and rescue the victims unhurt.
