The head teacher of Gingande JHS, Abubakar Issah explained how the conflict is affecting them and how the stray bullets hit the school block in last week’s shootout.

“Just look at these gunshot marks on our school buildings. Assuming we were in school that day, many young lives would have been recorded which will be a blow to us. We are not safe anymore and the conflict now does not respect anybody so we are pleading for security or all the teachers will take transfer as many have already done,” he stressed.
