The number of kidnapped students was not confirmed but they are said to be JSS 3 students who are preparing for the Basic Education Certificate Examinations.
It was learnt that some villagers were also abducted alongside the students.
Sources in the area said troops of the Nigerian Army and other security agencies are on the trail of the gunmen in a bid to rescue the victims and bringing the culprits to justice.
