Bandits kidnapped over 80 children in Tsafe Local Government Area, Zamfara state.
According to BBC Hausa, children between the ages of 12 and 17 were kidnapped on Friday morning.
The victim’s parents said they were in the bush early in the morning when the attackers gathered and took them into the woods.
Bandits continue to operate in troubled Zamfara despite government intervention to combat criminal activity. Hundreds of school children have been kidnapped. Some were later released after paying a ransom.
When the BBC reported the abduction, the kidnapper had yet to contact the parents and make a request.
