She sighted two men that had already changed into the school uniform and were about to wear the Hijab.
Out of fear, she took to her heels and headed back, but rather than run home, she went through the main gate to alert the school that had already gathered for general assembly.
When the students got wind of the information, pandemonium broke out as they were uncontrollable, running in various direction out of panic.
Speaking with newsmen in her office, the Principal of the School, Hajiya Fatima Madugu, said the information given by one of the teachers at 7:30am saved the school from being attacked.

Also, speaking the female staff, Bezat Doma, stated that she followed the foothpath (short cut) to enable her get to school early and meet up with her 8am lesson, only to be acosted by the two unknown men that asked her to return home, if she wants to be safe.
