Suspected gunmen launched an attack in Damaga town, Maradun local government area, on Wednesday, killing 13 people.
Miss Damaga, an eye witness, said that bandits on motorcycles assaulted students at the Junior Day Secondary School, but that the students dispersed and ran helter-skelter for their lives.
One of the students was shot and died instantly, according to the source.
Damaga went on to say that the bandits then moved inside the town and set fire to it, killing twelve people in the process.
‘The bandits attacked Government Day Secondary School first, but students fled to their homes as soon as they heard their arrival, but one student was killed,” he added.
