Boko Haram Jihadists Invades Another Nigerian Boarding School

Schoolgirls and teachers in north-east have escaped an attack on a boarding school by Boko Haram jihadists, witnesses tell BBC.

They say the militants in pick-up trucks arrived in the town of Dapchi, Yobe state, on Monday evening, shooting and setting off explosives.

Alerted by the noise, staff and students were able to flee.

Residents and civilian militia in Dapchi say they believe the jihadists had planned to kidnap schoolgirls in their town too.

After finding the school empty, the militants looted the building.

Recall in April 2014, Boko Haram kidnapped more than 270 girls from a school in Chibok.
