Gunmen believed to be members of
Boko Haram stormed Government
Secondary School in Mamudo Yobe
state on Saturday July 6th and killed
at least 29 students and one
Eyewitnesses and other students
who survived the attack said the
gunmen gathered the students, put
them in one of the hostel rooms,
threw explosives and opened fire,
killing at least 29 students and
wounding others. Some victims had
their body parts blown off, some
were badly burnt, while others had
only gun shot wounds.
Following the violent attack, the
Governor of Yobe State, ordered all
secondary schools in the state to be
shut down until September.
This killing is the third attack on
secondary school students in less
than a month. On June 16, suspected
members of Boko Haram killed
seven students of a secondary
school in Damaturu, then the next
day, June 17, nine students sitting
for an exam at a Secondary School in
Jajeri ward in Maiduguri, Borno State
were killed.

RIP to the young ones
we have lost.
