In response to the alarming security threats posed by kidnappers and bandits in the North-Eastern states of Borno, Adamawa, and Yobe, security agencies have taken proactive measures to safeguard schools in the region, as revealed by a survey conducted by the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).

One of the initiatives implemented by the Police in Borno involves distributing questionnaires to both public and private schools within the jurisdiction of Divisional Police Officers. The information collected through these questionnaires will aid in generating valuable intelligence, enabling law enforcement to develop effective strategies for school protection. Divisional Police Officers have been encouraged to make regular visits to schools to better understand their challenges and concerns. Furthermore, the Acting Inspector General of Police has launched the Standard Operating Procedure manual for Schools Protection Squad, outlining detailed protocols to enhance security measures.

Additionally, the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) in Borno has deployed 500 personnel under the Safe Schools Respond Team to protect vulnerable schools. A comprehensive vulnerability survey of schools was conducted in Yobe, leading to intensified security measures in 48 identified at-risk institutions. The NSCDC in Yobe is currently registering all schools in the state to facilitate close monitoring and prevent potential attacks.

In Adamawa, NSCDC personnel received specialized training in safe school administration and coordination, emphasizing the importance of community support in ensuring the safety of schools. The Adamawa Police Command has established strong collaboration with school managements and security sections, enhancing surveillance and vigilance to promptly respond to any security threats.

These coordinated efforts by security agencies underscore their commitment to ensuring the safety and well-being of students and staff in schools, reflecting the importance of community engagement and timely information sharing in bolstering security measures against criminal activities.
