Report emanating from the Polytechnic of Mubi is not palatable.
According to the report, the attack happened at a student hostel away from the Federal Polytechnic Mubi campus, the source said.
A lecturer who reveal this gory incident to BBC, said that, more than 40 students had been killed but there has been no official comment.
The reported killing comes days after a major operation against the Boko Haram militant group in the town.
The lecturer, who wish to remain anonymous, told the BBC’s in Hausa service that, the students were asked to say their names after lining up.
He says, it is not clear why some were killed and others spared – some of the students that were killed are Muslims.
His words “Everybody is scared and staying indoors now,” he said.
Further speaking, he said that students were now leaving the town they have take advantage of the tree branches over their cars, which is a traditional sign of neutrality in Nigeria.
When will this killing of innocent people STOP? When will Boko haram shift their sword?
God, we rest in your hand.
May their souls rest in peace, Amen.
