29 Students Killed By Insurgents In Yobe State In Northeastern Nigeria
Ibrahim Abdul, a senior teacher at the college, disclosed the figure Tuesday when the state's Governor, Ibrahim Gaidam, visited the school. Abdul added that 11 students sustained various gunshot wounds.
He said all the hostels and classrooms were burnt by the insurgents who attacked the college at about 11.30 pm. The attackers, who were said to have arrived at the college in several vehicles, also burnt down 40 houses.
The governor described the attack as inhuman and unfortunate and called on the security forces to evolve a more pro-active and intelligent approach to curb the menace posed by the insurgents.
He announced a donation of 100 million Naira (about US$s607,000) to assist the victims. The college was the fourth educational institution attacked in the state in the last eight months.
