The state Commissioner of Police, Ayuba Elkana, visited the school, accompanied by strategic and tactical commanders shortly after the incident.
Governor Bello Matawalle has since vowed to rescue abductees.
This is not the first time bandits will abduct students from schools in Zamfara. On February 26, bandits invaded Government Girls Science Secondary School, Jangebe, Zamfara state, and abducted many female students but were later released after spending weeks in custody.
In recent times, the northern part of the country has witnessed a series of abductions of schoolchildren, a development that has led to the closure of many schools in the region.
At the moment, many abducted students from northern schools are still in the custody of bandits.
