Police confirm 12 injured in gun attack on Potiskum school

A gunman, who reported opened fire, Friday morning, outside the College of Administrative and Business Studies in Potiskum, Yobe State, has seriously wounded 12 students, a police officer and witnesses said.

Potiskum, a city repeatedly targeted by Boko Haram, has been hit by violent attacks by the Islamic sect previously, including in February when two blasts rocked bus stations killing at least 27 people.

“We have evacuated 12 people with serious gunshot wounds to hospital from the scene of the shooting attack,” said the officer, who requested anonymity

Multiple students at the Potiskum-based college said the attacker with explosives strapped to his body blew himself up when he ran out of ammunition, but the blast caused no other casualties.
