…YOBE State Shuts Down All Secondary Schools…                                             ….Following The Gruesome Murder Of Over 20 Students….

The Yobe state government yesterday has ordered the closure of all secondary schools after a massacre that saw suspected Islamist extremists kill over 20 students in a gun and bomb attack on a boarding school.

The governor directed that all secondary schools in the state be closed down from yesterday, Monday 8th July 2013 until a new academic session begins in September.

Meanwhile Senate President David Mark has also condemned the act.
It would be recalled that 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 teacher.

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 gunshot 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.
