Acting on an intelligence report, the federal government has ordered the immediate closure of the Federal Government College (FGC), Kwali, located at Kwali Area Council of the FCT.

It also directed principals of unity schools across the country to collaborate with security agencies within their jurisdictions in order to forestall any security breach in the schools.

This is coming following the killing of a captain and two soldiers by terrorists Sunday night in the Bwari area of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

The captain and the two soldiers attached to the 7 Guards Brigade of the Nigerian Army, were reportedly ambushed after they visited the Nigeria Law School in Bwari following a distressed call from the authorities of the school.

The school management was said to have alerted that terrorists had dropped a letter indicating an imminent attack on the school.

A source from the school said, “Following the threat letter from the terrorists, the leadership of the Nigerian Law School drew the attention of the military authorities at the 7 Guards Brigade.

“The late army captain (names withheld) and the soldiers were dispatched to the school for preliminary investigation.

“They had a discussion with authorities at the school and agreed on what to do to safeguard students, teachers and school facilities. Sadly on their way back, the terrorists ambushed them and that was how the captain and two soldiers were killed,” he said.

Other persons in the party escaped the attackers by whiskers. Confirming the attack, spokesman of the Guards Brigade, Captain Godfrey Anebi Abakpa said troops were already combing the general areas in order to ensure that no more terrorist is hibernating around the area.

A few days ago, terrorists attacked Kuje prison and set hundreds of inmates free.

Communities in Abaji, Kuje Kwali and Gwagwalada Area Councils had been sacked by bandits forcing many farmers to abandon their farmlands.  

With the recent kidnap of a monarch in Kucihbuyi, a community in Bwari Area Council, many have become more apprehensive.

A statement yesterday from the FCT Education Secretariat said the 2021/2022 academic calendar for FCT Schools would come to an end on Wednesday, July 27 as against Friday, July 29.

“All parents and guardians should please take note and ensure their wards are conveyed home in good time from the school premises,’’ the statement added.
