Four students of Capro Secondary Mission School located at Gana Ropp in the Barkin Ladi local government area of Plateau state were abducted in the early hours of Thursday.
Three of the students have, according to reports, escaped. One remained with the bandits at press time.
The school is an arm of Calvary Ministries and is about 60 kilometres from Jos, the state capital.
Para-Mallam Peace Foundation president Reverend Gideon Para-Mallam told Channels TV that the attackers broke the rear fence of the school where a hole was drilled to gain access into the compound, and abducted the students.
He further stated that the intervention of security agencies prevented what could have been another mass abduction as the bandits fled after realising the reinforcement of security in the area.
