Niger State Governor, Abubakar Bello, has ordered the immediate closure of all boarding schools in crises-ravaged areas.
The governor gave the order after a brief meeting with heads of security agencies in the state at the Government House, Minna on Wednesday.
His order came in the wake of an attack at Government Science College, Kagara in Rafi Local Government Area of Niger State. Several students have been abducted while one is feared dead.
Bello called on President Muhammadu Buhari to deploy all necessary mechanisms to help in containing the situation.
