The National Coordinator of the Financing Safe Schools Initiative, Mrs Halima Iliya, has said that plans are underway to engage hunters and vigilantes on intelligence gathering to curb attacks on schools across the country.

Mrs Iliya, who disclosed this in an interview on Sunday in Abuja, said that aggressive community engagements and sensitisation of students, parents and teachers would kick off in the second quarter of the year.

She said, “As a component of the plan, for states with vigilantes, we intend to train their hunters, vigilantes and volunteers, while for states without registered vigilantes, we intend to advocate using youths.

“Youths will volunteer to protect their communities because we cannot achieve anything within a community without their involvement.”

Iliya also disclosed that there were plans to also use the platform of the National Orientation Agency (NOA) because of their presence in all the LGAs of the country. (NAN)
