GRAPHIC CONTENT: Death Toll Increases At College Of Agriculture, Yobe Following Boko Haram's Attack

Yesterday I posted the very sad news of dozens of students that were killed by Boko Haram at the College Of Agriculture, Yobe
As at yesterday evening several dead bodies were still being recovered from bushes, hostels and classes in and around the school.
A witness quoted by Reuters news agency counted 40 bodies at the hospital, mostly those of young men believed to be students.

College provost Molima Idi Mato, speaking to Associated Press, also said the number of dead could be as high as 50, adding that security forces were still recovering the bodies and that about 1,000 students had fled the campus.

A Nigerian military source told AP that soldiers had collected 42 bodies.
The gunmen also set fire to classrooms, a military spokesman in Yobe state, Lazarus Eli, told Agence France-Presse.

This is so heart wrenching, my sincere condolences to the family and friends of the victims.
