Authorities of the Kaduna State College of Education Gidan Waya, Jema’a Local Council, have denied the alleged killing of five students of the institution by Fulani herdsmen.

Media reports recently had it that five students of the school were killed close to Gidan Waya, when a commercial car taking them to school from Kafanchan, was waylaid by suspected armed herdsmen.

Sources had claimed that the five students were shot dead while the driver of the commercial taxi was the only one whose life was spared.

The state’s police spokesman, ASP Usman Aliyu, had denied knowledge of such killings, insisting that, “nothing like that happened.”
Reacting to the alleged killings, the school while reacting to the report in a rejoinder signed by its acting registrar, Samuel Tukurah, said the story was “totally false and unfounded.”

The statement, which added that the school does not run any Department of Mass Communication, where one of the alleged victims was said to be a student of, expressed surprise at the allegation, and called members of the public to totally disregard such stories.
