Civilian JTF to provide security in Borno schools

The Borno State Government said on Sunday that it will enlist the service of local vigilantes, called Civilian JTF, to provide security in public schools ahead of the November 17 re-opening date.

Public schools in the state are expected to re-open on Monday after they were shut on March 16 due to security challenges.

The Borno State Chairman of the 19-man committee on the resuscitation of primary school education in the state, Mohammed Dongel, said this in a meeting with education secretaries and headmasters of public schools in Maiduguri.

Mr. Dongel said that the vigilantes had already been contacted to provide surveillance in all schools.

“The state government deemed it necessary to take precautionary measures in ensuring safety of pupils and teachers in public schools before the re-opening date.

“The vigilantes have been contacted to provide surveillance and security to teachers and pupils in all schools to prevent schools’ attack like what happened in Yobe,” he said.

Mr. Dongel said that perimeter fencing had also been provided in public schools to prevent security breach.

He said food vendors in all schools would be thoroughly screened on daily basis to prevent any incident. He said visitors will also be properly registered.

Mr. Dongel said the state government had allocated two utility vehicles to the vigilantes to monitor activities in schools in Maiduguri and Jere Local Government Areas of the state.

He said that only four schools in Maiduguri, Konduga, Jere and Biu Local Government Areas would be re-opened on Monday due to logistic reasons.

He said schools in other local government areas would be re-opened at a later date.

Speaking on the outcome of the meeting, Mr. Dongel said that it discussed the development of the education sector, especially the introduction of feeding of pupils and distribution of free uniforms to reduce burden on parents.

He said that the committee would enroll children of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) currently taking refuge in Maiduguri in nearby schools to enable them continue their education.

Already, the Governor of Adamawa State has said his state will enlist the services of the civilian JTF to help flush out the dreaded Boko Haram sect that has continued to cause mayhem, seizing towns and killing scores.

    I have always asked, What are Muslims doing to defend and rescue Chibok girls from their fellow brothers in Islam? Northern Muslims should be left with the task of confronting Boko-Haram since they all advocate for Sharia .
