Insecurity: Kano Shuts 10 Boarding Schools

By  | 

The Kano State government has ordered the closure of 10 boarding schools located at the outskirts of the state.

This was disclosed by Muhammad Kiru, the state commissioner for education, on Friday night.

The commissioner said the decision became necessary as a result of the recent abduction of students from boarding schools in neighbouring states.

The affected schools are Girls Secondary School at Sumaila, Girls Secondary School Jogana, Girls Secondary School Gezawa, and Government Secondary School, Kafin Maiyaki (Male).

Others are Maitama Sule Secondary School, Gaya; Girls Secondary School Kachako; Girls Secondary School, Kunchi; Unity College Karaye; Girls Arabic College Albasu; Girls Secondary School Tudun Wada and Danzabuwa.

It would be recalled that gunmen had in the early hours of Friday invaded Government Girls Secondary School, Jangebe, Talata-Mafara local government area in Zamfara state, and abducted 317 schoolgirls in the process.

Though seven out of the kidnapped students have regained freedom after escaping from their abductors, the Zamfara state police command says a joint search and rescue operation was already underway with a view to rescuing all 317 students.
