Every school in the Northeast will henceforth be guarded by four policemen as part of the efforts to protect the students and staff from terror attack.
But 10 policemen will offer protection to Yelwa Government Girls College, Maiduguri, according to the Inspector-General of Police Ibrahim Idris.
The IGP said that five female and five male police details would be attached to the school.
Idris on friday visited Yelwa Government Girls College and Government College also in Maiduguri, during which he announced the new measure.
Idris said the police were determined to end the spate of kidnappings in the region.
He, therefore, appealed to the students and the managers of the schools to cooperate with the police personnel attached to their schools by reporting all suspicious characters to them for immediate action.
The police boss 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 IGP for the visit.
They both assured him of their support in reporting all suspicious cases to the police and lauded him for the initiative.
