Boko Haram is preparing to attack Government College, Makurdi, Benue State, and Principal of the school, Mr. Godfrey Ugudu, has revealed the plot.
Speaking on Saturday in Makurdi, capital of the state, Ugudu revealed that Mount Saint Gabriel Secondary School, a school located the opposite direction, also received threat of a Boko Haram invasion.
“It is true that we saw two letters informing us of the intention of Boko Haram to invade our school on Friday or Monday,” Ugudu said.
“The letters were dated May 14, 2014, stating that they were coming either of the two days to abduct our boys, whom they would marry to the secondary school girls abducted in Chibok.”
He said that while both letters were written in Pidgin English, one was slipped into a classroom, and the other into the staff room.
However, he assured the more-than-700 pupils of the school that there is no caused to worry about their safety, because the Police and the commissioner for education were immediately alerted, while the governor was also immediately provided with a report.
The treat letters were confirmed by Public Relations Officer of the Police in the state, Dan Ezeala, who promised that the Police would secure the lives of the students.
