Speaking to Channels Television on the hospital bed, through the pains of a gunshot that ripped his arm and exposed his intestine, he recounted his ordeal in the hands of the gunmen who attacked their school.
In a vivid emotional account, the school boy narrated how he was shot by the group and then he struggled into a nearby bush before he was eventually rescued and rushed to the hospital.
Gunmen suspected to be members of the Boko Haram sect attacked and killed students of the Federal Government College Buni-Yadi in Yobe State, north-east Nigeria in the early hours of Tuesday and also burnt down the school.
Earlier reports had said that the students were attacked in their hostels and slain by the hoodlums instead of the usual gun to avoid the attention of security men within town.
The Federal Government College Buni Yadi is a co-educational institution located some 55 kilometres south of Damaturu the Yobe State capital, and the attack is the fourth recorded on schools in Yobe since the commencement of the insurgency, as GSS Damaturu, GSS Mamudo and College of Agriculture, Gujba were attacked in 2013.
