Nigeria In One Minute

Invasion displaces 5000 pupils in Nasarawa State

Over 5000 school pupils have been displaced by herdsmen’s invasion in Nasarawa.

The crisis already resulted in the displacement of some 20,000 other people mainly from the three council areas of Awe, Obi and Keana in the southern senatorial district of the state.

The villages in affected councils, it was gathered, had been deserted, as the indigenes had taken refuge in neighbouring settlements.

During a visit to some of the schools in the three councils by The Guardian correspondent, the learning institutions were under lock and key. Not even an employee was in sight.
