An indigene of the community told our correspondent that the gunmen also set ablaze some motorcycles belonging to some of the staff and students of the school.

Although there were no report of casualties, a viral video of the incident showed the students and staff shouting and running for their lives.

The source said, “Gunmen came to the school and chased out the students this morning.

“They started shooting repeatedly and insisted that no examination would be allowed to go on.

“They destroyed some motorcycles and shot continuously until the students and teachers ran away.”

The police spokesperson for the state command, Mike Abattam, did not respond to the several calls put across to him by our correspondent.
