Adamawa Prohibits Visitors from Girls Schools

In a bid to prevent likely kidnap of female students across the state, the Adamawa State government has ordered principals of its girl’s secondary schools to henceforth deny visitors access into their school premises.
The State’s Commissioner for Women Affairs and Social Development, Aliyu Tola made the disclosure on Monday, while briefing the newsmen on activities outlined by the ministry to commemorate the International Women’s day in the state.
According to Hon. Tola, this measure was necessary following the recent abduction of the Dapchi girls.
He said the state government has already summoned all principals of the girl’s schools and taken statistics of the pupils and their locations, before issuing the directive.
“The state government has already taken a decisive action since the Dapchi school girls abduction and part of the measures taken apart from the security measures put in place is to know where all the girls schools are located and to ensure that visitors are not allowed entry into those schools.”
