Kano State Government Shut Down State Schools Due to Insurgency

Kano State Government through the state commissioner for higher education, Mariya Bunkure, has ordered the immediate closure of Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso College of Advanced and Remedial Studies, Tudun Wada; School of Environmental Studies, Gwarzo; School of Rural Technology and Entrepreneurship Development, Rano; and Audu Bako College of Agriculture Development (ABCOAD), Dambatta due to rising cases of students abduction in the north central region of Nigeria.

The commissioner made the announcement today after the state government closed down ten boarding schools across the state as armed bandits continue to the abduction of students in neighboring states.

All students of the affected schools have been instructed to leave the campuses immediately.

If you recall, less than two weeks ago, Armed bandits abducted a number of students and staff from a secondary school in Kagara, Niger state. While 317 school girls from Government Girls Secondary, Jangebe, Zamfara State were abducted last Friday.

The Niger students were released on Saturday, but the whereabouts of the 317 Jangebe schoolgirls remain unknown.
