Schoolchildren kidnapped in Nigeria


The hunt is on in Nigeria for a gang of kidnappers who have taken a group of schoolchildren hostage.

The 15 youngsters are all pupils at the Abayi infants and primary, an international school in Abia, a state in the south east of the country.

It’s understood the gang boarded a school bus and seized the children. The kidnappers have already asked for a ransom to be paid.
