Dr Mike Ike-Ene, NUT Secretary-General, told NAN that the incident was a lesson to everyone, urging the government to strengthen the security apparatus of the country to prevent future occurrence.

“Government should look at our security apparatus; if they cannot ensure 24 hours service of security in our schools in the North-east let them stop boarding schools”, he said.

“Children can come to school from their homes and the moment the students are in the school premises security should be provided until the school closes.

“The security agencies should also be placed in all the entrance by which people can use to enter the host communities or escape.

“There must be a proper structure provided for a particular security agency at the security posts.

“Also, having a particular security agency to be in charge of a particular security post in various schools will help to detect when things are going wrong.

“The effort will help to reduce the number of victims if there is emergency situation,’’ he said.

The official also appealed to the government to ensure the release of the remaining girls as well as Chibok girls still in captivity.
