A student of the institution, who wanted his identity hidden, told Daily Trust in a telephone interview today how he crawled into the night amidst gunshots.
He said the attack, which lasted about two hours in the off-campus accommodation situated at Yelwan Tsamiya in Wuro Patuji area of Mubi North Local Government of Adamawa state, was carried out arbitrarily with the gunmen breaking into rooms and shooting victims after asking them questions relating to their identity.
The student said he could not identify the attackers because he was hiding in a room.
In an adjoining room, a victim was heard admitting to be an indigene of Taraba state moments before he was killed by the attackers, the student said.
A second victim was heard claiming to be a retired civil servant before he was shot, the survivor told Daily Trust.
He also said all those who tried to escape were shot in the pandemonium that followed the attack, adding that he had to crawl into the night for safety amidst gunshots.
