Indications are that today’s massacre of at least 26 students of Federal Polytechnic at Mubi in Adamawa State, North East Nigeria, was carried out by people familiar to them.

Police spokesman Mohammed Ibrahim confirmed 26 people killed when the unknown gunmen invaded off-campus blocks, opening fire on defenceless students. No less than 15 others were reported injured in the attack.

The gunmen “knew the students that they were after,” reports the blog Naijapundit. “It has been revealed that before gunning the students down at the Yelwan Tsamiya off campus accommodation area the gunmen called out a list of names. Altogether over 20 students were killed.”

No group has claimed responsibility for the horrendous act but fingers are pointing in the direction of the Islamic terrorist sect, Boko Haram.

Men of the Joint Military Task Force hunting Boko Haram members in the terrorist-prone northern states are reported to have cordoned off the school as investigation continues into the gruesome killings.
