A resident of the community told some journalists that some students of the school mobilised themselves and protested the arrest of their teacher.
At least five students of Holy Ghost Secondary School, Pave Chanchji, in Takum Local Government Area of Taraba State have been killed by a special force of the Nigerian Army stationed in the community.
Meanwhile, WonderPlanet Team gathered from SaharaReporters that one Mr Matthew, a teacher in the school, got married to one of his students named Ngufa Kavga without her father’s consent.
It was learnt that Ngufa’s father reported the matter to the police, who then arrested Matthew alongside some civil defence operatives.
A resident of the community told the Media representatives that some students of the school on hearing of the arrest of their teachers then mobilised themselves and protested the arrest of Mr Mathew.
However, the students has said that they have called for the release of Matthew so that both families involved could settle the matter amicably.
“Some of the students protested against the arrest of their teacher and demanded that he should be released. But the special force stationed at the village, on seeing the protesting students, immediately invited their colleagues stationed at Kofai Amadu and the combined team of special forces opened fire on the protesting students, killing some.
“Some of them also ran into a nearby river and drowned in the process. Over five corpses have been discovered while many are still missing,” a source told the media.
The level at which the Nigerian Force are killing and maltreating people today without proper investigation is really devastating, I mean, who sees young teenage children crying for the release of their teacher and instead of petting and calming them, they instead shot them, I think the Nigerian force should be investigated because I can feel they are not all what they seem to be – Knight Fredel, a renown writer, light worker and a mystery teacher added.
