Vigilantes foil 84 Islamic school’s children abduction in Katsina


By Ismail Auwal

Member of a vigilante group in Mahuta last night succeeded in foiling an attempt to abduct pupils of an Islamic school in Mahuta, Katsina State.

Gunmen seized the Islamic school children while they were returning from a Maulud (Prophet Mohammad’s birthday).

However, the quick reaction of the vigilante group saved what would have been another school children abduction less than 3 days after the rescue of Government Science Secondary School, Kankara.

Mallam Abubakar Mahuta told Sahelian Times that the vigilante group not only succeeded in rescuing the children but animals earlier confiscated by the gunmen.

Many of the children have already been reunited with their parents, according to the Sahelian Times’ findings.

According to our source, at the time of compiling this report, there was no report of a missing child from any parent in the community.


The spokesperson of Katsina State police command DSP Isah Gambo, has confirmed the incident to Sahelian Times, in a phone interview
