Bauchi — Following alleged threats to attack schools, the Bauchi State Government has assured of its commitment to provide adequate security in all schools in the state.
Recently, teachers and students of boarding secondary schools and two tertiary institutions in Bauchi State told newsmen that they received threat letters from suspected insurgents sthat they would attack their schools.
Reacting to the threat Wednesday, the state Commissioner for Education, Alhaji Ibrahim Mohammed Aminu, said threat to attack schools was not a new thing adding, “we don’t neglect any information we receive; we take measures through the security agencies, parents and the communities to ensure that all our schools are safe.
He said: “Sometimes, some of the threats came every third term, some from students who feel they will not pass the promotion exam and after investigation some students were held as responsible for the threat by the security agencies.
He said government had educated both teachers and students on what to do if they see a strange face.
“We are aware of the threats, any information we receive, we immediately take necessary action and proactive measures. We send it to the security agencies and we investigate it to the letter and take all the necessary measures we don’t joke with threat and useful information we act on it immediately.”
