According to him, the bandits between the hours of 11 am and 12 pm, raided the school which had about 400 male and female students.

He said they came in their numbers on motorcycles wielding dangerous weapons and were seen all over the school premises.

Among those who escaped was a student who was shot on his thigh, and was later rushed to the hospital.
