Dapchi: Yobe students blow hot over attacks on schools


The National Union of Yobe State Students (NUYOSS) has called on the federal government to stop the attacks on educational institutions in the state.

The President of the Union, Comrade Hassan Musa El-badawi, told a press conference yesterday in Damaturu, that attacks on Yobe schools since the beginning of insurgency had claimed the lives of over 100 students in five schools.

He said, “We remember in sorrow our brothers and sisters who lost their lives tragically as a result of continuous attacks by the Boko Haram militants in FGC Buni-Yadi, College of Agric Gujba, GGSS Mamudo, GGSS Damaturu and GGSTC Dapchi. The recent Dapchi attack saga has further reawakened us that if adequate measures are not taken, more schools can be attacked.

He said NUYOSS was making it clear that Dapchi attack should be the last and effort must be intensified for the return of “our sister Leah Sharibu who is still in the hand of Boko Haram.”

He commended President Muhammadu Buhari and Governor Ibrahim Gaidam for their efforts in securing the release of the abducted schoolgirls but urged them to deploy more security personnel to protect all the schools across the state.
