BREAKING: Boko Haram wants to kidnap male students to marry kidnapped school girls.
Boko Haram has sent a letter to Government College, Markurdi threatening to attack the school, the school principal, Godfrey Ugudu has said.
Ugudu, at a news conference on Saturday, May 17, 2014 said the school received two letters on May 14 which both had the same content.
He said: “It is true that we saw two letters informing us of the intention of the sect to invade our school on Friday or Monday by Boko Haram.
“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.
“In the letter, we were asked to inform the Mount Saint Gabriel Secondary School opposite us to also get prepared as they promised to invade the place too.’’
The school principal said the police department and commissioner of education were notified, and commended them for their prompt response.
The Government College has about 700 students of which about 500 are boarders while Mount Saint Gabriel is purely boarding.
“We immediately alerted the police and the Commissioner for Education. A report has been made to the Governor on the issue,” he added.
Ugudu said: “The two letters, which were written in pidgin English, were sighted inside one of the classrooms and the second one was slipped into the staff room.”
He assured that security checks have been done to ensure the safety of its students. The principal also said that he had informed the principal of Mount Saint Gabriel about the threat from Boko Haram.
Dan Ezeala , the police public relations Officer in the state confirmed the report and assured that the police were at high alert.
The Islamist insurgents on April 14 kidnapped more than 200 female students of Government Secondary School, Chibok in Borno state.
