Lagos, Nigeria (CNN)Several students and three teachers were abducted Thursday by armed men from a federal college in Nigeria's north-western Kebbi State, State Governor Abubakar Bagudu told CNN.

Governor Bagudu also confirmed to CNN that a female student sustained gunshot wounds, while another staff member was hospitalized following the attack, adding that the school's security teams had been "simply overpowered by the sheer number of bandits. "

The definitive number of abducted students has proven difficult to establish, Bagudu added, noting that some concerned parents had since withdrawn their children from school following the attack.

Regional police chief, Adeleke Adeyinka, has assured families of the abducted students that the force "is following credible leads and intensifying efforts to track the assailants and ensure the rescue of the missing students and teachers. "
