Gunmen kidnapped two students from a school bus belonging to the Glory Land Group of Schools in Edo State on Tuesday.

They were said to be returning to Auchi, Etsako West local government area of Edo, after school when they were taken by their abductors.

The schoolchildren were reportedly abducted along the Igarra-Auchi Road, near Ikpeshi, Akoko Edo local government area.

The spokesman for the police command in the state, Kontongs Bello, confirmed the abduction and said policemen, soldiers and vigilantes were combing bushes to rescue the pupils.
