Nigeria’s military says it foiled an arson attack on a public primary school in Maiduguri, killing three suspected members of the Boko Haram sect who were caught in the act.

Military spokesman Lt. Colonel Hassan Ifijeh Mohammed confirmed the killings on Monday, the Associated Press reports, adding that his men had killed three members of the sect as well as arresting two others who were arrested.

The failed arson attempt is the latest in a series of school burnings attributed to the Boko Haram sect.

Seven schools in the region have been set ablaze in recent weeks in Maiduguri, the Borno State capital and heartland of the sect. The attacks have often happened at night.

Gunshots were heard in the early hours of Monday morning in the city, the AP reported.

The attacks on schools by the Boko Haram, whose name in Hausa language means “Western education is prohibited, has kept many pupils out of schools in Maiduguri.

Teachers of affected schools who spoke to the press say parents are keeping their children at home and out of school.

    Why are the teachers complaining? Whether the students come to school or whether the Sect whip out the schools in that state, what I think they should be after is that their MONTHLY PAY PACK keep on coming! Besides, they’re the most undereducated.

    IBB and ATIKU each own a western/American style university based in the North. BOKO HARAM has not attacked any of the schools. That shows their connection with the sect. More over ATIKU’s University AUN based in Yola comes monthly to Port Harcourt and other southern cities, lodges in high class hotels to recruit students. He makes little/no effort to go to the capitals of the 19 northern, Lagos, Oyo,and other islamic states to get his BOKO HARAM candidates. Why. He complains he was NOT made a President by blessed OBJ but ATIKU fails to tell Nigerians what he has contributed to PDP, ADAMAWA, Northern Nigeria, and Nigeria as a whole to make them hand over their faith to him. If he wants to contest 2015 presidential election let him first tell Nigerians/the world his connection with BOKO HARAM, ,MEND,SEA PIRATES, IBORI, IBB, AMAECHI, CUSTOMS, OIL CABALS, and other criminals making NIGERIA ungovernable. If he wants to aspire to be president he must work/suffer for it.Has he ever slept in jail/jungle/creek/desert? He should apply to serve PDP/President GEJ/VP Sambo or ACN/TINUBU or CPC/BUHARI/BAKARE so that they can give him a chance come 2023- by then IBB should be too old/dead to challenge him.Otherwise he should keep his peace/business like DANJUMA and forget about Nigerian Presidency!

In his words;

Good day, My name is Obi-Enadhuze Daniel younger brother of the now deceased Okechukwu Obi-Enadhuze @O_Okee . I, my brother and mother lived at makinde police barracks, mafoluku, Oshodi, Lagos State.

Today at about 11 o’clock in the morning the police station at makinde was attacked by thugs who wanted to destroy the station, I my mom and brother were holed up in our house.

 The attack went on for hours before the thugs eventually breached the police and proceeded to set the station on fire, after accomplishing this they set their sights to the barracks and began the assault, they proceeded to destroy every car in the barracks, my mom’s 2 cars where destroyed and set on fire and then they infiltrated our house by breaking the door they then proceeded to ransack the house and carted away with everything we own. 

 my brother on trying to get them to take everything but spare us was pushed to my mom’s room and stabbed on the neck, the attacker then proceeded to attack me but missed my neck but got my chin instead, after this my mom and I carried my brothers body to the entrance of the station soliciting for help from the thugs still ravaging the barracks, we were finally able to put him in a wheelbarrow and took him to a hospital where he was rejected because “he was already dead” unfazed we moved him to another hospital where he met the same treatment this was where he bled his last drops of blood and died, his body has now been moved to a morgue

we have lost every single thing we own, as our house was completely ransacked and set on fire the only thing left is my brothers phone and at about 8 o’clock this evening the barracks was still on fire but Okechukwu has paid with the ultimate price

I and my mother are homeless with nothing now but we’re safe for now, we thank everyone that has been able to reach out to us, and were able to share consoling words with us in these trying times, God bless you

While we were holed up in the house the three of us said these words together and we say it again ” THREE OF US ARE HERE, THREE OF US ARE TOGETHER, THREE OF US ARE SAFE”

Let it be known that my brother @O_Okee  was NOT killed by a police bullet but died a hero protecting my mother and I.

If you see this please retweet, let the world know how Okechukwu died. He was NOT killed by a police bullet but thugs in his home!”
