Nigeria school massacre: Yobe secondary schools closed Secondary schools have been ordered closed across Nigeria's north-eastern state of Yobe after a massacre in which suspected Islamist extremists killed 22 students and torched their school.

Yobe Governor Ibrahim Gaidam condemned as "cold-blooded murder" Saturday's attack on the Mamudo boarding school.

Nigeria blamed Islamist militant group Boko Haram - which targeted two schools in the region in June - for the attack.

The group's name translates as "Western education is forbidden".

Dozens of schools have been burned in attacks by Islamists since 2010.

Visiting the school on Sunday, Mr Gaidam described the attackers as "callous and devoid of any shred of humanity".

Mans inhumanity to man. It's sad what people can willingly inflict of other humans. At our roots are we still barbarians?

Interesting that no one here will comment about the horrors of what was done in the name of islam . The silence speaks volumes.
