Sokoto Police begins 24-hour patrol of schools

17 February 2015, 20:51

Sokoto - The Sokoto State Police Command said it had commenced a 24-hour patrol of all schools across the state to protect lives and property.

The Spokesman of the command, Al-Mustapha Sani, disclosed this on Tuesday in Sokoto.

'' This is part of sustainable and proactive measures by the command to ensure that all schools across the state are more secure.

''It is also to provide a conducive environment for effective teaching and learning in the schools,'' Sani said.

He said the command had recently organised a seminar for school principals, headmasters and proprietors of private schools on the need for them to be security-conscious.

He said the seminar was also to sensitise them on the need to complement the efforts of the security agencies on how to ensure the security of members of their schools' communities.

''They can also go a step further by engaging the personnel of reputable private security guards in this direction,'' the police spokesman said.

He urged managements of the schools to promptly report movement of any suspicious persons or groups in and out of their schools' premises to the security agencies for immediate action.
