World Teachers’ Day: 600 Teachers Dead, Over 19, 000 Displaced By Boko Haram – NUT

share on:

The Nigeria Union of Teachers, NUT has on Monday cried out over the killing of over 600 teachers by suspected Boko Haram terrorists in some parts of the North, adding that about 19,000 were reported among the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs).

This disclosure was made known in Ado Ekiti on Monday by the NUT National President, Michael Olukoya, during the celebration of this year’s World Teachers’ Day.

He called on federal and state governments to beef up security in public schools to prevent further attacks.

Speaking through a conduit, a senior NUT official, Samson Akinlade, Olukoya said:

”The memory of Chibok girls and thousands of others whose potentials and lives have been truncated , remains traumatic and demoralizing.

“It is on record that over 600 teachers have lost their lives to the terror attacks. These include 308 in Borno, Adamawa (75), Yobe (18), Kaduna (25), Plateau (120), Kano (63) and Gombe (2).

“This is additional to 19,000 teachers that have been displaced and are suffering great losses due to barbaric activities of the insurgents.”
