Niger State Ministry Of Education has released a photo of the student killed during the attack on Government Science College Kagara in Niger State.
However, it was earlier reported that Benjamin .B. Habila, an SS3C student, was shot dead by the bandits while trying to escape.
The bandits reportedly raided the school around 3 am on Wednesday, February 17, abducting the students and some of the staff.
A statement issued by the Ministry on Saturday, February 20, and signed by the Commisioner Hajiya Hannatu Jibrin Salihu, sympathises with the family of the deceased student.
“The Ministry shares in the grief caused by the unfortunate incident and his loss is indeed painful and colossal to bear but we all take solace in the fact that God Almighty gives and takes. Rest in peace.”
