On Feb. 25, 2014, terrorists from the Boko Haram terror group attacked the Federal Government College, Buni Yadi, in Northeast Nigeria. They killed at least 29 teenage schoolboys as they slept in their dormitories and burned down all the buildings in the compound, from the hostels to the classrooms. Only the mosque survived.
