Showing contempt for the state of emergency in effect inYobe State, suspected Boko Haram militants today stormed a boarding school and killed 30 students.
A credible military source in Nigeria who confirmed the attack to to SaharaReporters said the incident occurred at the Government Secondary School in the town of Mamudo at about 2am. The militants seem to have regrouped in a commando style to carry out the butchery, some of the victims reportedly burned alive despite soldiers all overthe place enforcing the militaryemergency.
In addition to the dead, many others incurred serious injuries and were rushed to hospitals in Damaturu, the state capital.
One teacher, our source said,is among those killed. Troopshave now been deployed to the area, but the incident callsto question the strategy beingemployed by the military in their implementation of the state of emergency, and how much success they have actually achieved so far.
This is hard to believe. Seems like some soldiers are cooperating with them. Only God will save us.
