Troops of the Nigerian Army on Friday foiled a planned abduction on Prelude Comprehensive College, Kujama area of Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State.
The bandit attack was foiled following receipt of credible intelligence by the troops and Police operatives who mobilized to the targeted school.
Confirming the incident, the Kaduna State Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan said in a statement that the bandits were alerted of the presence of security operatives, and abandoned their plans to attack the school.
The bandits were reported to have changed their plans at the last minute and left through Kaduna-Kachia Road between Kafari and Tashan Ice.
