Dapchi: 2,000 policemen guard 300 schools in N/East

The Police authorities have beefed up security in schools in the north east zone by sending 2,000 armed policemen to guard them.
A competent police source said that the officers would man over 300 schools in Yobe, Adamawa and Borno states to enhance the security of students and teachers
According to online news medium, PRNigeria, the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mr. Ibrahim Idris, would embark on appraisal visits to the North East to access the performance of the policemen.
The source said the Idris would also visit Dapchi community in Yobe State to commiserate with the families of the 110 abducted girls by Boko Haram insurgents.
The IG would also meet with various stakeholders engaged in the fight against Boko Haram with a view to supporting them.
He would equally interact with top government officials, community leaders and traditional rulers as part of his efforts to strengthen synergy in the campaign against insurgency.
Despite deploying the Assistant Inspector-General of Police (AIG) to Maiduguri to compliment the military effort to rescue the Dapchi schoolgirls, after returning from medical vocation, the IGP deems it necessary to come to the North East and see things for himself, the source said.
“I want to reassure Nigerians that the IGP is committed toward his primary mandate of protecting lives and properties from all part of the country,” the officer said.
