Men suspected to be members of the Islamic Sect, Boko Haram, today Tuesday Feb 25th launched an attack on students of the Federal Government College Buni-Yadi Yobe state, killing 49 students (or more), Hausa Service BBC reports. Some buildings in the school were also reportedly razed.

Sources at the school said the men invaded the school in
the early hours of this morning while the students were still sleeping in their hostels and slaughtered them. Guns were not used in the attack as was the sect's usual practice, probably to avoid the attention of people. They used machetes.
