The Parents Teachers’ Association of Federal Government College, Buni Yadi, Yobe State, has described as misleading, the arbitrary figures of Monday night attack, reported in the media.

The PTA Chairman, Engr. Mohammed Kati Machina, who made this known in an exclusive interview with The Nation in Damaturu, the Yobe capital yesterday, maintained that casualty from the attack still stands at 29 not 43 or 59 as bandied in the media.

“We have an authentic report from the hospital and what we gathered is that only 29 students were killed. 21 students were killed by gunshots while eight were burnt. 11 were injured and three were admitted at the specialist hospital in Damaturu.

“Some of the injured students have been taken away by their parents. Out of the 10 dead bodies that were brought to Damaturu, two were burnt beyond recognition”, Engr. Machina explained.

The PTA chairman pleaded with the Federal Government to provide security around all schools in the country especially Yobe and Borno States.

He commiserated with families that lost their children in the attack.
