Two students from Edo’s Glory Land Group of Schools have been kidnapped.

The schoolchildren were abducted near Ikpeshi, Akoko Edo local government area, on Tuesday at 5.35 p.m. on the Igarra-Auchi Road.

SP Kontongs Bello, a spokesman for the state police command, confirmed the kidnapping and said police officers, soldiers, and vigilantes were combing the bushes for the students.

“Two students have been kidnapped, but efforts are underway to save them.’

Nigerian police officers, soldiers, and vigilantes are already combing the bushes for the students,” he said.

The vehicle in which the students were traveling with other students was reportedly stopped at gunpoint, and the abductors dragged the two students from the vehicle into a bush.

The schoolchildren were said to be on their way home from school in Auchi, Edo’s Etsako West local government area, when they were abducted.
