Soldiers foil attack at Bishop Oyedepo’s school in Kaduna State


The timely intervention of soldiers foiled the attack at Faith Academy, a secondary school owned by Living Faith Church Worldwide founded by Bishop David Oyedepo.

The school which came under attack in the early hours of Monday July 5, is not far from another boarding school where many students were abducted in Chikun local government area of Kaduna State, was foiled by soldiers.

Daily Trust reported that the gunmen had launched coordinated attacks on both Bethel secondary school and Faith Academy in the early hours of today. A security agent confirmed that the gunmen broke into the premises of Faith Academy through the back fence around 1am but were repelled by soldiers, with assistance from the school security team.

It was gathered that the school management had last week instructed all students to go home, except SS3 students who were preparing for final year exams.

A parent who commended security agents for their timely intervention, said adequate provision has been made to move the SS3 students to Barnawa in Kaduna south local government area where they are expected to continue with their studies.
