Unidentified gunmen raided a school in Mamudo,Yobe state, on Saturday, and killed about 29 students and a teacher. Survivors stated that the attackers set buildings on fire, and students who attempted to flee where shot dead.

This attack is conceived to be another Boko Haram act, and the U.N Children’s Fund says that 48 students in total and 7 teachers have been killed since June 16,in the northeastern part of Nigeria.

Yobe is one of 3 states where President Goodluck Jonathan has declared a state of emergency and deployed troops to combat the Boko Haram sect. Following this current attack, all schools in Yobe state have been ordered to shut down until September by the Yobe state Governor Ibrahim Geidam, until authorities can employ more efficient means of protecting students and teachers.
