The Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai, on Wednesday, vowed that bandits attacking the state will be defeated.
El-Rufai stated this during a visit by the Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Isiaka Amoo.
The Kaduna State Governor promised that his government would not allow bandits to disrupt the education system.
He commended security agencies for their fight against banditry and insurgency in Nigeria.
“We are confident that we shall win the fight against banditry, we are sure that our schools will remain functional.”
El-Rufai further stated that during stakeholders meeting on Tuesday, they agreed to shut down the most vulnerable schools in the state.
In attendance were government officials, heads of security agencies, civil society and religious groups.
“We agreed that only the most vulnerable schools should be shut down, because they cannot be easily accessed due to the terrain of their location,” he said.
Amao disclosed that his visit was to assess the preparedness of the Air Training Command, whose personnel are fighting the bandits in the North-West.
Naija News reports that this was made known on Wednesday during a press conference by the Commissioner of Internal Security and Home Affairs in Kaduna state, Samuel Aruwan.
