Bandits Kill Secondary School Student, Injure Others in Plateau

Gunmen suspected to be terrorists have killed a student of the Government Science School, Kuru, Plateau State.

The incident occurred at about 8pm on Friday with other students sustaining gunshot injuries.

The details of the incident are still sketchy as it’s unclear where the attack occurred.

While some residents said it happened inside the school, others said the gunmen stormed a petrol station opposite the institution where the students had gone to charge their phones because of the power outage, shooting sporadically.

According to a resident, “They just attacked Science school, Kuru? God abeg!! God please ooooooooo. It happened around 7-8pm yesterday at Government Science School, Kuru, Plateau State. And we wanna give the government another chance. After another 4years we might have been dead”.

However, DSP Alabo Alfred, spokesperson of the Plateau State Police Command in a statement said the incident occurred along Mararaban Jama’a, Riyom Road and not inside the school.

“Upon receipt of the report, a high powered team of policemen and other security agencies responded swiftly and mobilised to the scene of the incident but on reaching the scene, the gunmen had fled leaving behind one person dead and three others injured. 

The injured persons were conveyed immediately to the hospital for treatment. Meanwhile the Police are still on the trail of the fleeing suspects.

“The State Commissioner of Police, Bartholomew N. Onyeka, advised members of the public to go about their lawful business as normalcy had already been restored in the area, assuring that his men are on ground to contain any further disruption of peace.”
