Unknown gunmen had on Friday stormed Local Government Education Authority (LGEA), primary school Alwaza in Doma Local Government Area of Nasarawa State and abducted scores of school pupils in the area.
The abductors who whisked away the Six primary school pupils were said to have laid siege around the school while the children were going to school.

Two of the adopted pupils were later rescued by the police Saturday afternoon according to the PPRO.
Reacting to the incident on Saturday in Lafia, Comr. Ewuga called for full scale investigation into the issue towards finding lasting solutions.
