In a statement by Colonel Sani Kukasheka Usman who is the spokesperson of the army, he said the school “comprised 6 military tents in which soldiers not on essential duty served as teachers. In addition, some of the IDPs who were teachers before their displacement also teach in the school.”

The school has over 3,000 children while there is also a section for adult education for women.

The project caught the eye of the United Nations Children Fund (UNICEF) which also assisted the Brigade with 2 additional tents and school bags for the pupils “while Borno State Urban Education deployed a Principal to assist in running of the school.”
