Kaduna has been worst hit with attacks from bandits with repeated abduction of students from both public and private schools.

Earlier today, reports were rife that the state had lifted the suspension of academic activities and that schools would resume today, August 9, for the third term session.

However, this afternoon, at a joint press conference, the state’s Commissioner for Education, Dr. Shehu Muhammad, and the Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Mr. Samuel Aruwan, dismissed the claim.

Muhammad explained that the schools were scheduled to reopen on Aug. 9, but the ministry was not given the clearance due to ongoing security operations.

“We were, however, surprised that for mischievous reasons, some individuals are circulating misguided information, claiming it was from the ministry, asking schools to resume.

We want to categorically say that all schools – public, private and religious, including federal schools in the state – are to remain close.

We will reopen as soon as we are advised to do so by security agencies, assuring us that schools are safe to open” he said
