Zamfara State Governor, Bello Matawalle, has ordered the immediate closure of all boarding schools in the state.

The directive was triggered by the abduction of more than 300 students from Government Girls Secondary School in Jangebe, in the early hours of Friday.

“As we are making efforts to strengthen security around our schools, I have directed the immediate closure of all boarding secondary schools across the State,” Matawalle said in an evening broadcast.

The kidnapping is the latest in a series of attacks, carried out by bandits, on schools across the country’s North.
