Gunmen have abducted several students from a religious school in Nigeria. They were abducted on Sunday in the northern city of Tegina.

The Niger administration later said in a tweet that 200 students were still missing. This number is expected to be even higher.

Witnesses say gunmen entered the city on motorcycles and opened fire indiscriminately. At this time ordinary people started fleeing from the spot. The gunmen then went to the institution and abducted the children. Students between the ages of 6 and 18 study there.

The kidnapping is believed to have taken place for ransom. In February, gunmen abducted about 300 female students from a residential school in the Jangebe area of ​​Zamfara State. Although most of them were later released. There have been at least six student abductions in northwestern and central Nigeria since last December.

The abduction of 276 female students by the Islamic militant group Boko Haram in the northeastern city of Chibak in 2014 sparked a worldwide backlash.
