Dozens of distraught parents gathered at the school on Tuesday to pray.
Militants have kidnapped nearly 1,000 school children in the region since December to get ransom money. Christian schools in particular are the target of such kidnappings.
One tearful parent recounted the events to Reuters.
PARENT: “Just this morning, at about six a.m., I received a phone call that they have entered, the school kidnappers, that all our children are packed [taken], including my daughter inside. We rushed down here. We confirmed that they are packed [taken].”
No wonder Open Doors has listed Nigeria as the ninth worst country in the world for the persecution of Christians.
