In the Buruburu incident, several students were rushed to Metropolitan Hospital after sustaining injuries.
Several disturbing videos shared on social media by passersby in Buruburu show the screaming girls jumping from the school’s multi-storied dormitory in an attempt to escape to safety as smoke engulfed the building.
