Armed Bandits went into the school and abducted hundreds of students including teachers.
According to a kidnapped staff and students who managed to escaped said a student was shot dead during the operation.
“Bandits went into GSC Kagara last night and kidnapped hundreds of students and their teachers,” said the official, who asked not to be named due to the sensitivity of the issue.
