The Borno State Government has shut female boarding schools in 25 out of 27 local government areas of the state to prevent abduction of anymore schoolgirls by the Boko Haram terrorists.

Speaking to journalists on the modalities put in place to prevent further abduction of students from schools, the Borno State Commissioner of Education, Inuwa Kubo, said all female boarding schools except those in Maiduguri and Biu, had been closed.

“We have decided to relocate all our girls in boarding schools within Maiduguri or Biu because we do not want a recurrence of the Chibok case,” Kubo said.

Recall over 200 schoolgirls were abducted in April 14, 2014 from a Chibok secondary school, Borno State and 110 schoolgirls abducted few days ago at a secondary school in Dapchi, Yobe State.
