The Inspector General of Police (IG-P) Ibrahim Idris has directed police to embark on a 24-hour security surveillance in schools in Yobe state.
He told students of Government Girls Secondary School, Damaturu, Yobe that the new measure would provide students with security and enable them to pursue their studies and realise their dreams.
“We will deploy additional policemen to the schools to see to your welfare, safety and security.
“They will be here 24 hours and I want you to cooperate with them, give them information on strange faces and movements for maximum security,” he said.
He donated 10 bags of rice and a bull to the students.
Idris later told journalists that his visit to the liberated areas was to put appropriate measures in place preparatory to the total withdrawal of the military.
He partnering was being forged with traditional rulers and other stakeholders to provide the police and other security agencies with useful information “to move timely and curtail excesses of the miscreants”. (NAN)
