Gunmen kill over 20 students in Adamawa

Gunmen on Tuesday opened fire on students at campus hostels used by students at Federal Polytechnic Mubi, Adamawa state killing and wounding an unknown number, official of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) said.

Mass exodus of students from Mubi Town after an attack by suspected members of Boko Haram on a student hostel in the town.

“Definitely there are casualties but we don’t yet know how many dead or injured,” said the spokesman of NEMA, Yushua Shuaib.

Some residents put the number of victims at 35 persons. The dead and injured persons are mostly students of the polytechnic.
The school have not issued any official reaction to the attack.

The Boko Haram Islamist sect, which usually targets politicians or security forces, has also attacked students in the past and has cells in Adamawa.

Mr Shuaib said it was not clear if the attack was carried out by Boko Haram or if it was related to a dispute between rival political groups at the college.

Only a few days ago, the military Joint Task Force had conducted a major operation against insurgents in the town, killing a major Boko Haram figure, and arresting more than a hundred.

    OH GOD AGAIN

    It’s quite a pity that we have to ask again, who is winning this war?
    A.) The terrorists
    B.) Government

    We already know the honest answer.

    As long as government continue this our usual system of divide and rule, more problems will emanate that may even consume the leadership of this country, not until we face the facts and tackle this issue from the roots. 
    For those who feel that it’s just a regional problem, they should think again. the way these killings are going, without being an expert, one can predict what will become of Nigeria in the next five years.

    May their soul rest in peace.People go to sleep and the next morning they are gunned down for no just cause. We need serious prayers in the country. We are not fighting flesh and blood but the evil spirits that have to come to kill, to steal and to destroy. We have a powerful Man of God, Prophet TB Joshua in the country. Why cant we join him in prayers and let him lead the fight for us.

      What has your powerful man of God TB Joshua been waiting for to save his own country
      since. Please just stop campaigning for a business man. We are talking about terrorist
      killing defenceless and innocent children and u are here busy promoting a business enterprise as a solution to the problem. Please tell your so-called powerful man of God to use his powers and make Nigeria to start producing even bicycle. Boko Haram is a Cancer spreading all over the world. Our Govt should start cutting the head of the snake which is their sponsors. And Jonathan
      knows who they are

    “Government is at the top of the situation” when boko haram kills everybody and destroys the economy
    in the north finish. richard.

    it is really unfortunate. the matter should really be investigated thoroughly. it must have been by Boko Haram, and likely that the students killed where known to have helped the security in tackling them in the area. this would then mean that, the school itself is already infilterated by boko haram or some students in the hostel are members or informants for the sect. because, for them to be pin pointed out for to maim them means they were really known. i suggest that the school should be kept under close watch from now on. i really pray that the family of those killed will have the fortitude to bear the loss
