An armed gang on Monday night stormed a seminary of the Anglican Communion, Babington Macaulay Junior Seminary (BMJS) in Ikorodu, Lagos State, and abducted five female students.
There are still conflicting reports on the number of students abducted as the Police is insisting that the number of students taken away by the gang was three.
The armed men, suspected to be pipeline vandals, had stormed the school premises located at Agunfoye-Lugbusi village and gained entry through the back fence and successfully took the girls.
Already, the Lagos State Police Commissioner, Fatai Owoseni and a team of crack detectives had visited the school premises and left about 4am Tuesday.
Confirming the incident, the state command’s spokesperson, Dolapo Badmos, a Superintendent of Police, said efforts are ongoing to track the abductors and rescue the girls.
“Three female students were taken away by some criminals on Monday night but investigations are on to track then. At this moment, we cannot give you more information but you will be briefed as event unfolds.”
