yobeSchools in Yobe on Monday resumed normal academic activities 10 weeks after a forced closure due to the activities of the Boko Haram insurgents.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalls that the schools were abruptly shut down after insurgents killed 29 students and three teachers in two separate incidents.

Seven students and two teachers were killed at Government Secondary School, Damaturu, while 22 students and two teachers died at Government Secondary School, Mamudo.

NAN reports that most public and private schools have reopened, with large turnout of pupils and students noticed in primary and secondary schools in Damaturu, the state capital.

Some of the students said they were excited to be back after the forced closure.

Alkali Usman, a student of Nana Aisha College, Damaturu, said: “we are happy that peace has returned to the state and, we are meeting our friends and class mates.

“We are back and prepared for the examinations that were suspended due to the security challenges and sudden closure of our schools.”

A parent, who would not want his name in print, said he was satisfied with the improvement in security situation in the state, adding, “This has encouraged me to send my wards back to school”.

He commended the government for dismantling some security check points in Damaturu, saying it would “facilitate easy movement especially for parents taking their children to and from school”. (NAN)
