Governor Sule shuts down all primary, secondary schools in Nasarawa Over Insecurity
Governor Abdullahi Sule has ordered immediate closure of all primary and secondary schools in Nasarawa monitored by myschoolnews.
In a directive out July 27, the governor said disturbing attacks in Abuja and other contiguous states have left his administration with no other options but to close schools across Nasarawa.
Mr Bello said “following recurring” cases of “security breaches and threats
in parts of the country, including some neighbouring states,” has directed “the immediate closure of both public and private primary and secondary Schools operating in state as a precautionary measure.”
The statement, signed by education commissioner Fatu Sabo, said those undertaking NECO and SSCE should remain behind to complete their examinations, stating that adequate security measures have been put in place to safeguard students.
The directive came two days after armed bandits killed about a dozen soldiers in Abuja during a foiled invasion of the Nigerian Law School in Bwari, a suburb of the nation’s capital.
Several security reports have warned of imminent bandit or terrorist attacks in Abuja, Nasarawa, Niger, Kaduna and other states across central Nigeria.
