Katsina State Governor orders immediate closure of schools

By Simdi Gloria:-

Aminu Masari, Katsina State Governor has ordered the immediate closure of all schools in the state.

It would be recalled that earlier on Saturday, December 12, armed men stormed Government Science Secondary School in the area and began shooting into the air, causing the students to flee into the bush, after which they abducted an unspecified number of students.

Speaking with newsmen this afternoon, Governor Masari said;

“This incidence has gone beyond imagination. For us, it’s highly worrisome and disturbing. I am assuring parents and guardians of these children that we couldn’t say that we are more disturbed than them but be rest assured that we share the same worry with them. Because we know that we have the responsibility to protect their lives and their health.”

And by God’s grace, we will do all that it takes to rescue the entire abducted students. I urge you people in the name of Allah and his prophet to please remain patient and intensify prayers.

This is because sharing blames and all sorts of abuses are not the solution in this trying time. Honestly speaking, we are not enjoying what is taking place and we are not executing what we supposed to do when it comes to the issue of protection of lives of our people.

We want to assure you that we will do all what is possible for the school children as we have directed for the immediate closure of all schools in the state and that all students should be taken back home.”
