Like Zamfara, Yobe Shuts All Boarding Schools

The Yobe State Government has ordered indefinite closure of all boarding schools across the 17 local areas of the state. 

Though the reason for the closure was not meant public by the state officials, our reporter learnt that order may not be unconnected with the recent abductions of student in Zamfara states and Niger States.

A source in one of the schools disclosed that directive to shut schools reached them earlier in the day.

According to him, parents with support from security operatives came earlier in the morning and evacuated students from Government Girls Unity College, Damaturu.

He, however, said the directive will not affect SSS 3 students.

The state commissioner for basic and secondary education Dr Sani Idriss, was not available for comment at the time this report was filed as he neither answered calls nor replied a text message sent to him.

Niger, Zamfara and Kano are some of the states that shut schools recently.
