Yobe attack victim says no Buratai then no school 



Faiza Mohammed, one of the girls who escaped Boko Haram attack, at Government Girls’ Science and Technical College Dapchi says she will not go back to school except the Chief of Army Staff Lt. Gen. Yusuf Tukur Buratai becomes the gateman of the school.

Faiza gave an account of the experiences they went through in the process of hiding their presence from the marauding Boko Haram terrorists.

She said, one of her classmates was bitten by a snake as they tried to escaped in the bushes in the night to unknown destination.

Faiza, also praised the efforts of their teachers during the attack, saying “our teachers tried to keep us together, but some stubborn students started jumping the fence to run into the bush. While some of us hide into nearby houses from the school.

“I told my mother that I will not go back to that school again except Buratai is the gateman. But my sisters Daughter told me that my demands are impossible because Buratai cannot come down to Dapchi to become gateman at my school. What I simply want is for government to provide for us enough security.” She said.

However, because of what her sister said, will go back but if no security, she will just come back and study at home and write her final exams and JAMB,” Faiza said.

Yobe State Government has closed down the school for one week.
