It was gathered that the suspected kidnappers attempted to gain entrance into the school premises through the rear-fence. They were said to have fired gunshots to scare the students but the policemen on guard were able to intercept them and then called for reinforcement.

However, multiple sources have claimed that some students were actually kidnapped in the attempt.

It’s the second time the school will be attacked by kidnappers in recent times, following a similar attack in October, 2016.
