Gunmen have attacked the Saint Albert the Great Institute of Philosophy, a Catholic church-owned seminary in Fayit community in Kagoma Chiefdom of Jama’a Local Government Area of Kaduna State.

They were said to have invaded the school on Monday night and started shooting sporadically, thereby, creating fear among the students and staff of the school.

Spokesman of the Kaduna State Police Command, Mohammed Jalige, who confirmed the attack to Channels Television also noted that three students were abducted by the gunmen, while some others were injured.

They were said to have taken the students to an unknown destination before the arrival of local vigilantes who were able to prevent them from taking more students.
