Some of the students and their teachers, among whom are Mr Paul Olabode, were inflicted with sword and machete cuts, while many others were left with broken legs and hands.

The source disclosed that the school had just finished morning devotion and students were preparing to settle down in their classrooms to continue their second-term examination when the herdsmen invaded the school farm with their cows grazing mindlessly on crops.

Efforts made by the students and the teachers to drive away the herdsmen were met with brutal resistance.

According to Vanguard, the school principal, Mrs Grace Alamu confirmed the incident through a telephone call, said that the incident had been reported to the police.

“I am on my way to the school. Policemen are coming to the school this morning,” she said.

Meanwhile, all efforts to contact the state’s Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Adewale Osifeso, to also confirm the invasion, proved abortive, as several calls placed to him were not answered as of the time of filing this report.
