Four suspects have been arrested in connection with this morning’s massacre of innocent students of the Federal Polytechnic at Mubi in Adamawa State, North East Nigeria, according to reports from the area.

The reports are however sketchy and did not give details of the identity of the arrested suspects.

Meanwhile, an indefinite curfew has been imposed on the town even as the school authorities have closed down the institution and panic-stricken students are finding their way to their various states.

As previously reported by News Express, the police has confirmed that 26 people were killed when unknown gunmen invaded off-campus blocks, opening fire on defenceless students. No less than 15 others were reported injured in the attack.

Reports have it that the gunmen knew the victims by name and called out a list of names that before mowing down the students at the Yelwan Tsamiya of the polytechnic’s off campus accommodation area.

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.
