IGP orders maximum security in schools, colleges


IGP Usman Alkali Baba, the Inspector-General of Police, has ordered a review of police personnel and operational assets deployed to schools and institutions around the country.

This is to assure the protection of schools and colleges, notably boarding schools, tertiary institutions, and their campuses in regions prone to security breaches across the country, according to Force PRO CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi.

The decision was delivered at the Force Management Team's management meeting on Tuesday at the IGP Conference Hall, Force Headquarters, Abuja.

As a result of several isolated incidents recorded in various schools, the meeting assessed the country's overall security, including the security of schools and universities.

Adejobi said, "The IGP equally directed all State Commissioners of Police, Tactical Commanders, as well as their supervising Assistant Inspectors-General of Police (AIGs), to explore all available options and think outside the box to boost security in and around schools, colleges, and student-based communities.

"The IGP has equally directed detectives/operatives of the Force Criminal Investigations Department (FCID) and the Force Intelligence Bureau (FIB) to ensure sustained surveillance and intelligence gathering activities within various school environments while the Police Airwing has been directed to extend its aerial patrols to the six geo-political zones of the country.

"The Inspector-General of Police, therefore, assured that all hands will be on deck to ensure a safe environment for all pupils and students in the various schools and colleges of learning within the country. He further reiterated the commitment of his administration to diversifying resources towards sustainable security and safety of all and sundry in Nigeria."
