In night raid, security agents take away Dahiru Bauchi students in Kaduna

Security agents have stormed the Kaduna residence of Sheikh Dahiru Usman Bauchi at night and took away students who were sleeping in the premises.

The head of the Dahiru Bauchi schools in Kaduna and Imam of the mosque on Western bypass (Nnamdi Azikiwe Expressway), Fatahu Umar Pandogari, confirmed the raid.

“Around 12am, security agents comprising soldiers, policemen, Kaduna traffic agency, Federal Road Safety Corps, stormed the house of Maulana Shehu, the school and took students away at night,” Pandogari told the BBC.

He said they have not been told the reason for the raid, but that since the first outbreak of the coronavirus disease, the school was shut and students sent home. He said those arrested were living in the residence of Sheikh Dahiru Bauchi, not those who come from other states.

Pandogari also said it is difficult to ascertain the number of students taken away because it happened at night.

He said they attempted reaching the Kaduna State Government authorities but did not succeed. The government has also not commented on the raid.
