Employing Hunters & Closing Down Schools In The Suburbs Can Reduce Schools Being Attacked By Bandits

Another Zamfara school, another banditry attack, and mass abduction of students. The Federal Government will again issue threats and the State Government will go after the bandits. Before leaving the matter for the unfortunate parents of the abducted children. The parents will then hold meetings and gather their lives and life savings together and send them to the bandits.

Sometimes the State Government will make up the ransom while declaring that payment of ransom to kidnappers is haram. Then after a few weeks or months, the children would be released. The governor will parade their new school uniforms and make long speeches. Then the cycle repeats itself. According to Sahara Reporters, bandits have abducted many students of Kaya town, Kaya Junior Secondary School in Maradun Local Government Area of Zamfara State. The gunmen had stormed the village on motorcycles on Wednesday afternoon and shooting sporadically.

The federal government can not on their stop this current banditry the way it unfolds. The bandits in all cases are home-based. The business is now lucrative, even if the whole battalion of our military is deployed, they can only cool it down for a while. These are 2 things that can stop banditry in schools in Zamfara, Niger, Nasarawa, Kaduna, and Katsina.

1. The schools should be guarded by vigilantes and other security personnel

Each State government is given monthly security votes, they should use this money to employ the service of vigilante to guard these schools and protect them from the attacks of bandits, or at least alert others of their attack in time.

2. Schools in the suburbs should be close down.

All schools in the rural areas that are prone to bandit attacks should be close down by the government. This will reduce the focus on the schools in the towns which can then be protected.
