Idris said the police were determined to end the spate of kidnappings in the region and assured the students that each school would have 4 police men, except in Yelwa Government Girls College where 10 police personnel were attached.

The police boss explained that in the girls college, five female and five male police details would be attached.

He, therefore, appealed to the students and the managers of the schools to cooperate with the police attached to their schools by reporting all suspicious characters to them for immediate action.

The police boss also urged them to shun all social vices and be law abiding to avoid jeopardising their future.

He gave a personal donation of 20 bags of rice and a cow to the students of Government College Maiduguri.

In their separate responses, the Principal of Government College, Mr Abba Gana, and that of Government Girls College, Hajia Bintu Abakura, commended the police chief for the visit.

They both assured him of their support in reporting all suspicious cases to the police and lauded him for the initiative.

Meanwhile, the police would set up an Explosive Ordinance (EOD) training school in Borno to check indiscriminate Improvised Explosive Device attacks by Boko Haram insurgents in the state.

IGP Idris made this known on Thursday, March 22, during an interactive session with officers and men of the Borno state police command in Maiduguri.
