This happened late on Thursday.

Daily Post reliably gathered that a female student was shot dead by bandits suspected to be Fulani herdsmen.

A resident, who reached out to their correspondent late Thursday night, said other students equally hit by bullets are battling for survival in an undisclosed hospital.

The news medium also received a gruesome video displaying the lifeless body of the victim, as well as some of the survivors of the attack.

A voice in the video narrated thus: “Fulani herdsmen attacked our students, they were going home after school; one of them was shot dead; four students were shot, one died instantly; they have done enough.

“See the corpse of the little student they have murdered; this one is unconscious, (pointing at another victim) we are praying that God will sustain her; she sustained four bullet wounds.

“This was done by the Fulanis operating at Eke-Egede Road; these are the ones that survived; the government should come to our rescue. Our place is now a death zone.”

The Principal of the Catholic Church-owned school, Rev. Fr. Frank has also confirmed the attack.

“It is true; we dismissed by 3:30 pm yesterday, as the students were going home, the bus they were in was attacked by gunmen; some of them received bullet wounds, of which one later died in the hospital.

“That was between 4:30-5 pm; the gunmen just opened fire on them.”

“We feel so saddened to lose such a promising young girl in this circumstance.”
