The reunion party of the 279 Kidnapped students of Government Girls Junior Secondary School in Jangebe, Zamfara state and their parents on Wednesday March 3, turned bloody after military personnel allegedly fired shots at the agitated parents, killing one person while two other persons sustained serious gunshot wounds and have been rushed to the hospital.
Arise News reported that the anxious parents had converged within the school premises waiting to reunite with their wards. Trouble began when the parents who were angry that the reunion ceremony was unnecessarily too long, disrupted the proceedings to hug their children and reunite with them.
It was at the moment of the chaos that the soldiers allegedly opened fire, killing one person. Two others sustained life threatening gunshot wounds. One of the injured persons is a boy who had come to the school premises with his dad to reunite with his sister who was abducted by the bandits.
The state government nor security agents are yet to comment on the development.
