Military spokesman in Yobe State Eli Lazarus disclosed that at around 2 a.m., suspected Boko Haram insurgents attacked a students’ hostel at the Federal Government College, a school for students aged 11 to 18 in the town of Buni Yadi.

It was gathered that the assailants arrived in 6 Toyota Hilux pickup trucks and motorcycles.

Adamu Garba, who teaches at a secondary school attached to the college, said the attackers first set ablaze the college administrative block, then moved to the hostels, locking the students in before starting fire. Garba says those who tried to escape out of the windows had their throats slit by the terrorists. Those who remained inside were burnt alive.

The military has already been dispatched to the area.

The latest attack is the fourth recorded on schools in Yobe State. GSS Damaturu, GSS Mamudo and College of Agriculture, Gujba were attacked last year.

Yobe, together with Borno and Adamawa States, has been under emergency rule since May 2013 to help the military to curb the Boko Haram activities.
