Kidnappers now disguise in school uniforms – Govt

The Oyo State government Friday raised alarm that kidnappers are now wearing school uniforms to abduct school children in Ibadan, the state capital.

This was contained a circular issued from the office of the Permanent Secretary, Oyo State Ministry of Education, Science and Technology, dated October 27, 2021, a copy obtained by our correspondent in Ibadan Friday.

The circular was addressed to the state chairmen of TESCOM, SUBEB, Executive Secretary (BOTAVED), zonal and local inspectors of education, all principals and head teachers of public and private schools; all private school owners and parents in the state.

According to the circular, it is a new method adopted by kidnappers to get at children, urging parents to sensitise and warn their children and wards to be security conscious by rejecting free rides from strangers.
