How We Spent The Night In The Bush – GSSS Kankara Students

Published

on

Gunmen stormed the State Security Secondary School (GSSS) in Kankara, Katsina State, on Friday night, some of the students who spent the night in the forest where they fled to seek refuge returned on Saturday morning.

An SS1 student, Kabir Isah, one of those who spent the night in the bush, told Daily Trust how much he suffered and how he felt for his fellow students.

“We left the classroom after leaving school at 9.00 pm and returned to our dormitories.”

“At about 10.30 am when some of us were already in bed, we just heard gunshots and the senior students rushed to the scene.”

“While some of them advised us to for safety, others asked us to gather in dormitories and begin to understand the situation before taking the next step.”

“As we heard gunshots getting closer, we approached the school fence and scaled into the bush.”

“It was then that the gunmen started calling us saying nothing would happen to us, but eventually they took money and phones from those who were stuck at the school.”

“We ran for about three hours in the forest, before gathering in a place under the trees and staying awake until we first heard the call for dawn prayers.”

“Most of us were injured while scaling the fence and while running in the bush, but thank God we returned home only to find out that some of the students had been abducted by the attackers,” he said.

Isa said his younger brother, a student in the school was still missing when he spoke to Daily Trust.

He prayed for God’s intervention in restoring peace in the state and the country as a whole and called on governments at all levels to redouble their efforts to address security challenges in the country.
