It was at about 8pm, that the school caught fire. The girls' dormitory was targeted in particular.
No lives were lost, just the damage on property and fear that was instilled in the students of Saint Pius college.
There have been a number of recent fire attacks of on schools. The people behind these attacks are never tracked down in spite of the security measures that are put in place.
Heavily armed men who even sleep in the schools where they are assigned, are not good enough to maintain security, except that they are the ones who burn the schools themselves and accuse Southern Cameroonians.
