Nigeria School Attack – level 1

04-03-2021 07:00

A group of men attack a school in Nigeria. The men have guns. They search all the buildings. They take at least 317 girls away. The girls must go into a forest.

More attacks on schools happen in the country. Attackers take 344 students in December 2020. The students are free one week later.

Another attack happens last week. Attackers take 42 people. The situation in Nigeria is very bad. People are not safe. Children have a lot of mental problems after the attack.

Nigeria has a new president in 2015. The situation is worse since 2015. The president does not comment about the attack.

Difficult words: search (to look at something and to try to find something), mental (connected to the mind and thoughts), comment (to say opinions or ideas about something).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
