Metro Hoodlums Attack School In Kaduna, 1 Feared Dead, Others Injured.



A student of Government Junior Secondary School, Badarawa, Kaduna may have been killed, while several others sustained various degrees of injuries when hoodlums attacked the school yesterday, causing pandemonium and confusion. LEADERSHIP learnt that students attempted to defend themselves with any available object.

Consequently, Kaduna State government through the Commissioner of Education, Science and Technology, Dr Shehu Usman Adamu, has read the riot acts to the miscreants and others planning nefarious acts to stay away from Kaduna schools as such acts will be resisted.


According to eyewitnesses, pandemonium broke out when the miscreants invaded the school through the popular Colombia area, attacking and beating any student and staff of the school they could lay their hands on, while students in retaliation picked up available objects for defence, thus resulting in a free-for-all chaotic situation.

Local vigilantes from the neighbourhood were quickly mobilized to curtail the situation, but they were overpowered by the miscreants and students.

Policemen from Malali divisional police office, led by the Divisional Police Officer, were called to quell the fracas, but the warring parties remained adamant, following which Kaduna State Security outfit, Operation Yaki, arrived in four Hilux pick-up vans to bring the situation under control, after which the miscreants immediately disappeared, while the injured were taken for treatment.
