The Zamfara State Government, as well as the Kano State Government, announced the closure of boarding schools in their states following the abduction of 317 Jangebe schoolgirls on Friday.

Briefing newsmen at the state Government House in Gusau, Governor Bello Matawalle of Zamfara State said boarding schools would remain closed till the security situation in the state improves.

“We have no alternative but to close down all boarding schools so as to douse the fear being entertained by parents and guardians due to the recent abduction of the schoolgirls in Jangebe,” the governor said.

“We are, however, doing everything possible to rescue the children and reunite them with their families,” he added.

Also, the Kano State Government said in order to avert the Zamfara experience, it was shutting down 10 boarding schools located on the outskirts of the city.

The Kano State Commissioner for Education, Muhammad Kiru, who made the announcement, listed some of the affected schools to include, Maitama Sule Science College Gaya; Girls Secondary School Kachacko; GSS Ajingi, Sumaila, Albasu and Kafin Maiyaki,GGSS, Jogana, Gezawa and Kunci.

The commissioner said the closure of the schools was with immediate effect and advised parents to rush to the school premises to evacuate their children.
