The gunmen were said to have arrived at the school around 1 am and loaded the girls in buses.
A resident in Kawaye village identified as Seidu Muhammadu who confirmed the development to SaharaReporters said his daughters, Mansura and Sakina, were among those abducted.
"I'm on my way to Jangebe now to see the situation myself. I was told they invaded the school around 1 am," he said.
SaharaReporters learnt that the bandits arrived around 1 am with buses and motorcycles, which were used to take the pupils away.
