It was feared on Tuesday afternoon that gunmen have again abducted three male students of Community Day School, Gobirawa, Safana Local Government Area of Katsina State.
People living around the area alleged that the students were abducted on their way home shortly after the school closed for the day.
The gunmen were said to have forced the children on three motorcycles before zooming off.
However, the residents could not provide details on the students especially on those relating to their classes and families.
It was their colleagues who reportedly raised the alarm on getting to the town.
SP Gambo Isah, the spokesman for the Katsina Police Command, said he was not aware of the incident and should be given time to contact the DPO for the area.
Associate Professor Badamosi Lawal, the state Education Commissioner, could also not be reached for comments while the spokesman for the Ministry, Sani Suleiman said he was in Abuja and was not aware of the incident too.
