She said that the abductors had blocked the road, accosted the victims and whisked them away before the security operatives could arrive at the scene.

Anene further explained that the families of the victims and school authorities had notified the police and an investigation into the matter had already commenced.

Deputy Registrar, Information and Public Relations of the Institution, Mrs Lucy Iwodi, however, told journalists when contacted that she was yet to obtain the necessary permission from the school’s authority to speak about the matter.
