“There was a lecturer in the class during the incident. He was shot by the door of the lecture room. He was late to the class and was being asked to come into the lecture hall. While he was offering reasons for his lateness, someone came from behind and shot him.” Idoni stated.

“The culprit, after carrying out the dastardly act, ran towards the Ogunbiri side of the institution where the perimeter fencing has failed and escaped. We are using this opportunity to call on the State Government to assist the institution in the completion of the perimeter fencing of the school to assist in proper security of lives and property of the institution.”

The spokesman of the Bayelsa State Police Command, Astimin Butswat, who also confirmed the incident, said he is waiting for details from the Divisional Headquarters in Ammassoma.
