Schools Should Be Built Near Military Camps To Curb Attacks By bandits – El-Rufai

Governor of Kaduna state, Nasir El-Rufai, has advocated for the construction of schools near military camps to curb attacks by bandits in the state.

Speaking during a programme on Nigerian Television Authority (NTA) on Friday, el-Rufai said the attacks can be foiled if troops are able to get to the affected school within 30 minutes.

Th governor also said Kaduna needs more troops deployed in affected areas, as the security challenge is beyond what the police and Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) can handle.

“In our view in Kaduna, first (way to address the situation) is to ensure that schools are fenced, because, unless we fence schools, we will give easy access to criminals.

So, fencing schools is very important, and that’s a budgetary item; you need money to build fences,” he said

The second is to have enough (security operatives) on ground. We must have more civil defence (officers), more private security guards, more vigilante people in the schools, and watch towers so that any threat of abduction can be seen in good time so that you can call for help.

“The third is to look at schools and to ensure that they are located no farther than 30 minutes from military installations, because what we are facing with the bandits is beyond the capacity of civil defence and police. We need the army, the air force and navy special forces.
