The federal government has commenced the relocation of students from Borno, Yobe and Adamawa states to other states over incessant Mass abduction.
Boko Haram terrorists had in the past abducted pupils, women and girls from the three states, including Chibok in Borno State and Dapchi in Yobe State.
Also, bandits and kidnappers had in recent times carry out mass abduction of pupils in some North-Western states.
Speaking to The PUNCH, the Director of Press and Public Relations in the Federal Ministry of Education, Ben Goong, said also said the Safe Schools Initiative of the government had not stopped.
He stated that the implementation of the Safe Schools Initiative was being intensified and re-invigorated.
Asked what the Federal Government was doing about schools located in high-risk areas in the north, Goong said, “As we speak, there are quite a number of students from Borno, Yobe and Adamawa States being relocated to other schools across the country, including the Federal Capital Territory.”
He cited the example of some students from Borno State who he said had been relocated to the Federal Government College, Kwali, Abuja.
He said students were being moved to safer schools and were being catered for with full boarding facilities.
Goong added that the Federal Government would be carrying out some enlightenment campaigns especially among the military to discourage the use of school facilities for military-related activities.
