Benue state government has announced the closure of all schools operating in the state indefinitely starting from Friday, March 27, 2020.
This is coming after the number of people infected with Coronavirus rose to eight after five cases were confirmed in Lagos.
This prompted the state government to take action and shut down all schools in order to prevent the deadly virus from spreading among residents in the state.
The State Government broke the news via Twitter with the words;
”SCHOOLS TO CLOSE INDEFINITE
