Soldiers on Monday foiled an attempt by gunmen to attack Faith Academy, a secondary school owned by Living Faith Church Worldwide, founded by Bishop David Oyedpo.
The school is located in Chikun local government area of Kaduna State, not far from a boarding school where many students were abducted by the gunmen in an attack that happened in the early hours of Monday.
While the gunmen abducted students at Bethel School, the attack on Faith Academy was foiled by the soldiers.
Daily Trust, which reported the story, gathered that gunmen had launched coordinated attacks on both Bethel secondary school and Faith Academy in the early hours of Monday.
A security agent confirmed that the gunmen broke into the premises of Faith Academy through the back fence around 1am but were repelled by soldiers, with assistance from the school security team.
A parent, whose son attends the school, said that the school management had last week instructed all students to go home, except SS3 students who were preparing for final year exams.
