Yobe State Closes Schools as a Result of Terrorist Attacks

The Yobe State Government has closed down all public and private schools in the state, following Monday’s suicide bomb attack on Government Science Secondary School, Potiskum which claimed 47 lives and injured 79 others.
The state Commissioner for Education, Alhaji Muhammad Lamin, in a statement said that government decided to close the schools to enable it adopt more security measures to guarantee the safety of students, teachers and the school environment across the state.
In his reaction, the Senator representing Yobe South Senatorial District in the Senate, Alkali Jajere, appealed for a change in strategy by security operatives to contain insurgency in the state.
He urged security agents to respect the rules of engagement in their operation, and called for synergy between law enforcement agents and the public, to effectively fight insurgency.
