Revealed: Warning Letter Bandits Wrote To Bethel School In Kaduna Was Ignored

Facts emerged on Tuesday on how the bandits wrote the management on their intention to attack the school.


A parent, who confided in one of our correspondents, said the bandits actually notified the management that they were coming to attack the school.

The warning, the parent said, was ignored by both the guardian of the boys’ hostel and matron of the girls’ hostel when the students took the letter to them.

She said the teachers taunted the students for being eager to go home for holiday.

She stated, “The bandits actually wrote the school a letter on Sunday that they were going to attack it on Tuesday before striking on Monday.

“The students took the letter to their guardian and he said to them that they didn’t want to be in school and that they were trying to look for an excuse to leave school.

“They took the same letter and gave it to the matron of the girls’ hostel; she also acted the same way.  The children in their innocence believed them and never said anything until the bandits struck on Monday. The bandits notified the school of their coming, but the students acted otherwise.”

However, Jangado dismissed the claim, saying it was a pure lie.

He said the bandits took the school management unawares.

“That is a serious lie. That is wrong. These people (bandits) took us unawares, because we have our plans on security matters, how we can ensure that the students write their exams and go. So, there was no letter or any information about their coming,” he stated.
