Boko Haram Strikes Again, Attacks Girls School In Yobe State

Share This

Boko Haram jihadists launched an attack on a girls boarding school in Yobe state, northeast Nigeria but the students and teachers fled to safety, witnesses said on Monday.

A convoy of fighters in pickup trucks descended on Dapchi village in the Bursari area of Yobe state around 6 pm (1700 GMT) targeting the school, resident Sheriff Aisami told AFP.

Unable to kidnap the girls, the Boko Haram fighters looted the school before fleeing.

It’s unclear whether anyone was killed in the violence. “When they stormed the village they began shooting and setting off explosives,” Aisami said.

“This drew the attention of the girls in the Girls Science Secondary School, so the girls and the teachers were able to escape before the attackers got into the school.” “
“There was an attack on the girl’s secondary school in Dapchi by BokoHaram,” said a member of a local civilian militia battling the extremists.

“Obviously the attack was meant to abduct school girls but luckily they found none of the girls as they were taken away by teachers before they arrived,” said the militia member, who declined to provide his name for safety reasons.

“Military jets were deployed and are in pursuit”, he added.
