Many Feared Dead As Bomb Hits A Secondary School In Yobe

Many students are feared dead after a bomb went off during assembly this morning at Government Science & Technical Secondary School, Potiskum Yobe State.

A teacher and a medic told AFP:

“The students had gathered for the morning assembly when something exploded in their midst with a thunderous sound‎ at exactly 7:50 am (0650 GMT). The explosion has affected many students but I can’t say how many because we are now evacuating the victims to the hospital which is just 100 metres (yards) away,” the teacher added, sobbing.

A medic at the Potiskum General Hospital where the victims were taken said scores of students had
been admitted.

“We are still receiving casualties from the school which is a stone’s throw from here. Our priority now is to save the injured, so we have not started a headcount of the victims.”

A local resident, Adamu Alkassim, said there was confusion in and around the school but the scene was a mass of abandoned footwear and blood. There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack but Boko Haram militants are likely to be the prime suspects.

Pls can these people stop writing ‘no one has claimed responsibility of an attack’ like anyone would!
