Unknown gunmen last night in Kaduna State attacked a government-owned secondary school in a community near the troubled town of Zonkwa, in Zangon Kataf Local Government area. A security operative who confirmed this gave the name of the school as GSS Fadan Kaje.
The gunmen started shooting sporadically upon arrival, the source said, as they advanced towards one of the hostels, resulting in many confused students, and hundreds of them trying to flee to safety. Nobody was reported to have been killed, and armed soldiers, on arriving at the scene, chased into the bush after the escaping gunmen. It would be recalled that last weekend, six persons were killed in the area by unknown assailants.
Many of the victims who were injured in the attack are still receiving medical attention. On Monday, Governor Yero, in a highly-protected convoy, visited the area and comforted the victims. He promised that the perpetrators of the attacks would be found and punished.
