“The incident involved a motorbike thief who ran into the school when he was chased by some people,” Tambuwal said

He added that “In the ensuing melee, there was an unexpected entrance of the youths into the school premises, which scared the students, which made some call their parents, thinking it was a case of kidnapping.

He also called on the people of the area not to panic and go about their lawful businesses without fear.

The Governor also indicated that the state Commissioner of Police and other security agencies in the state were on top of the situation.
