A resident, Mr. Amos Kawu told DAILY POST that news had filtered into town that the herders had resisted any attempt to stop them from grazing their cattle in the school premises.
“Their resistance threw the school girls into serious panic”, he said.
Kawu revealed that it prompted the youths to mobilise to the school premises and chased the herders away.
He added that dangerous swords and weapons were found with the herders targetted at the innocent girls.
DAILY POST gathered that palpable fear has enveloped the school girls over the recent Dapchi experience where over 100 girls were abducted.
