Horror!  Man kills three pupils with matchete in Borno.

Three children were killed and a teacher was injured when a man armed with a machete stormed a primary school in northeast Nigeria, two residents told AFP on Thursday.

The attack happened at about 9:30 am during break time at the Jafi Primary School in Kwaya Kusar, in the southwest of Borno state.

Kasimu Ibrahim, who lives near the school, said the attacker — described as being in his 30s and with a neat beard — headed to the nursery section of the school.

“He entered a class and began attacking pupils. He hacked two boys to death, aged about five and seven,” he told AFP by telephone.

A third victim — an eight-year-old girl — died on the way to a hospital in neighbouring Gombe state, he added.

The teacher managed to raise the alarm after she was struck in the hands and the attacker was overpowered.
