The Yobe State Government has closed all boarding schools across the 17 local areas of the state indefinitely.
The decision is believed to be linked with the recent abductions of students in Zamfara and Niger states as fears are highlighted that more could be witnessed in other parts of the country.
According to reports, the directive on the latest development reached schools in Yobe earlier on Sunday.
Reports have it that parents, with support from security operatives, came earlier in the morning and evacuated students from Government Girls Unity College, Damaturu.
However, students in SSS 3 were not affected by the directive.
