Hundreds of students are feared Kidnapped after armed bandits raided a school dormitory in northwestern Nigeria overnight.

According to multiple reports, the missing girls were kidnapped at the Government Girls Secondary School Jangebe.

A teacher from the school revealed that the attack happened around 1:00 am.

Nigeria has been facing attacks from heavily-armed criminal gangs in recent years, kidnapping for ransom, raping and pillaging.

Earlier this week, another group of kidnappers released 53 people who were kidnapped from a government bus.

In December, more than 300 boys were kidnapped from a school in Kankara and they are still missing.
