Tulip International School, located in the Isheri area of Ogun State lost about five staff and two students to kidnappers today.

This was confirmed to Channels Television, by the anti-kidnapping squad of the Ogun state police command.

The source said that the gunmen invaded the school, formerly known as Turkish International School, Friday night in a white Hilux and took the students and the teachers away.

The students, one from the Junior Secondary School and the other in Senior Secondary, were said to have been part of a moral instruction class when they were taken.

Members of staff abducted, alongside the students, included three Nigerians and two Turkish nationals.

According to staff of the school, the gunmen gained entrance through the back fence of the school, escaping through the swamp.

Meanwhile, men of the Nigeria Police and the anti-kidnapping team of the Ogun State Police Command are currently on the ground, while others are already on the trail of the abductors.

The incident occurred on the 9th anniversary of the school.

This comes about three months after gunmen invaded Lagos Model College in Epe and kidnapped four students, a vice president and a teacher from the school.
