27 Students Shot And Stabbed To Death In Nigeria
An unidentified number of gunmen launched a vicious attack near Northeast Nigeria colleges on Tuesday afternoon, fatally shooting and stabbing more than 20 students.
The attack comes following the Saturday killing of three college students in the same area and the incidents are believed to be related.
Fox News reports:
Assailants shot and stabbed to death 27 students in the second attack near colleges in Nigeria’s troubled northeast in the last few days, authorities said Tuesday.
Danjuma Aiso, a student at Federal Polytechnic Mubi, a college in the town of Mubi in Adamawa State, said attackers invaded the student accommodation outside the campus between 10 p.m. Monday and 3 a.m. Tuesday.
Twenty-seven students were killed forcing the school to close Tuesday, according to Students Affairs officer Mohammed Baba Karewa who spoke told Aiso and other students. Authorities say they speculate that students may have been behind the attacks, but Mubi and the surrounding region have also suffered from a spate of killings by a radical Islamist sect known as Boko Haram.
Hopefully they can get things under control over there sooner than later…..
