Dapchi Abduction: IGP In Yobe Over Schools' Security
It is only before darkness that it is easy to find a black goat and bring it to its stall.
President Muhammadu Buhari's threat to punish Security Chiefs should any abduction occurs again in northeast Nigeria may have sent a strong signal.
Yobe seems to be the focus at the moment since the abduction of some 110 girls from a secondary school in Dapchi in February.
Even though the terrorists have returned the girls after one month without any confrontation, as agreed in a negotiation, Security Chiefs are beefing up security.
The Inspector General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idriss, on Saturday visited Yobe State in compliance with the presidential directive to provide security to secondary schools in the state.
He met with the deputy governor, Mr Abubakar Aliyu, who represented Governor Ibrahim Gaidam.
Police and other security agencies will provide adequate security to schools in Yobe State and other northeast states, the IGP said while assuring the government of the state full protection of lives and property.
According to him, the deployment of security personnel have already started across North East secondary schools to ensure peaceful learning environment.
The visit is coming three days after Boko Haram splinter group returned some girls abducted from Government Girls Science and Technical College, Dapchi on February 20.
The government said no ransom was paid for their return.
