A rocket was fired at a Muslim school in Bukuru, Jos this morning and killed a boy aged about 10, military spokesman Salisu Mustapha told Reuters.
“A 10-year-old boy was hit on the head… and he died,” said Abuh, adding that the attacker fled the scene before he could be apprehended.
This is believed to be in retaliation for the the killing of state government officials last week during a funeral, and hundreds others from villages around the capital city.
Hundreds have been killed in ethnic clashes in Jos over the past decade, and the situation has gotten more complex as some attacks have been claimed by Boko Haram and others are suspected to be between fulani herdsmen and the native plateau people.
