Bungoma - Students from Bumula girls high school have been sent home indefinitely following an alleged invasion by demons that have been haunting them for the past two weeks.
Efforts by priests to exorcise the demons bore no fruits and the board of management agreed to send them home as investigations kick off to establish the main cause.
Speaking to News24 after staging a demonstration on Monday evening, the girls said they are terrified by the strange things that happen at the institution every night.
“We see money littered everywhere in the compound but when we try to pick the notes they disappear. At night some men come to have sexual intercourse with us but we can’t see them. We fear for our lives,” narrated a terrified student.

They said the issue has caused them anxiety and sleepless nights, lamenting that priests have been unable to help them.
Bungoma County Director of Education, Charles Anyika said he had been informed about the issue and ordered for the students be send home until normalcy is restored at the institution.
“I know the issue may affect the fourth year students but let's relax as we work on fixing the problem and ensure that when they resume everything will be in place,” said Anyika.
The claims of alleged devil worship in schools is becoming common with some people blaming it on teachers and students who go seeking for powers from unknown sources to help them in exams.
