The state says it has made arrangements to provide adequate security for schools in the state.
Academic activities resumed in schools across Yobe state on Monday following 10 weeks of closure after the brazen attack by members of the violent Boko Haram sect on two secondary schools, which led to the death of 29 students and three teachers.
The state government ordered the closure of all schools in the northeastern state after the attack by members of the sect on Government Secondary School, Mamudo.
The state’s primary and secondary schools were however ordered to resume academic activities as the government assures that adequate measures have been taken to prevent any such attacks.
But Government Secondary School, Mamudo, would remain closed for another two weeks for the conclusion of ongoing reconstruction work in the school, the state Commissioner of Education, Mohammed Lamin said.
As the school reopens, the government says it has concluded arrangements with security agencies to ensure the safety of lives of students and teachers.
