The state government or police authorities, are yet to react to the development.
However, the BBC HAUSA report monitored on Friday morning, said a teacher in the affected school and one of the parents of a student, confirmed the developments.
Zamfara in Northwest Nigeria is one of the states most affected by bandits’ attacks. The attacks have continued despite negotiations initiated by the state government with the bandits.
The latest attack on the Zamfara school occurs about two weeks after over 20 students were abducted by armed bandits from a school in Niger State. The students in Niger were yet to be released at the time of this report.
