Zamfara State Government on Tuesday shut down 10 boarding schools in the state to prevent possible abduction of students by bandits.
This was disclosed to newsmen by the Commissioner of Education, Dr. Ibrahim Abdullahi.
According to the government official, the schools would remain closed until the security improves.
Abdullahi said, “We will not want what happened in Katsina to happen in Zamfara State.
“All the Principals of the affected schools have been directed to ensure immediate closure of the affected schools.”
He urged parents and guardians to exercise patience and cooperate with the government.
Recall that bandits on Friday night abducted over 300 students of the Government Science Secondary School (GSS), Kankara, Katsina State.
