The school management was said to have alerted that terrorists had dropped a letter indicating an imminent attack.

Spokesman of the Guards Brigade, Captain Godfrey Anebi Abakpa, confirmed the attack to Daily Trust, but said troops were already combing the area in order to ensure that terrorists were not hibernating there.

Suleiman was the son of Col Suleiman Ahmodu Babanawa (rtd). He hailed from Okpo in Olamaboro Local Government Area. Late Attah was from Ibaji local government of the state.

Meanwhile, messages of condolences have been pouring into the family of the slain soldiers.
