The Katsina State Government has directed the reopening of four boarding schools in the state from tomorrow. The State Commissioner for Education, Professor Badamasi Lawal Charanchi, gave the directive yesterday after his meeting with top officials in the Ministry including the Permanent Secretaries and the 12 zonal inspectors of education, among others.

This comes barely one month after day schools in the state resumed academic activities sequel to an indefinite vacation following the abduction of 344 students of Government Science Secondary school, Kankara by bandits on December 11 2020. The commissioner also says male students in the remaining boarding schools are to report at any nearest secondary school to their places of abode to continue their studies while their female counterparts should await further instruction from the government.

Meanwhile, in Kano state, the government has closed 10 boarding schools following the incessant abduction of students from boarding schools in northern states.

The Kano commissioner for education, Sanusi Kiru, announced this in an audio message sent to journalists last Friday evening. He said the closure followed a thorough analysis and assessment of the abduction of boarding students during night hours in some Northern states. The announcement was made several hours after the abduction of 317 students of Government Girls Secondary School, Jangebe, Zamfara State, in the early hours of Friday. Following the Jangebe abduction, the Zamfara government shut all boarding schools in the state.
