The Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, has assured all schools in the North-East part of the country currently threatened by Boko Haram terrorists of adequate police protection.
The IGP gave the assurance on Friday in Borno during a visit to Government College and Yelwa Government Girls College in Maiduguri.
Idris said the police was determined to end kidnappings in the region and assured the students that each school would have policemen except in Yelwa Government Girls College where 10 police personnel were attached.
The IGP said in the Girls College, five female and five male police details would be attached.
He, therefore, appealed to the students and the managers of the schools to cooperate with the police personnel attached to their schools by reporting all suspicious characters to them for immediate action.
He urged the students to shun all social vices and be law-abiding to avoid jeopardising their future.
In their separate responses, the Principal of Government College, Mr. Abba Gana, and that of Government Girls College, Hajia Bintu Abakura, commended the IGP for the visit.
