“…From now on, any school that looks like what I have shut down should be closed. Nobody should wait for us to shut them down, we have officers on the ground. But in the process to be humane, that even as we shut them down, can we ensure that there are schools where the minors can be relocated to,” he said.

At the school were 207 pupils who will be moved to Ayany Estate Primary, also within the area.

The CS assured parents that the transition will be as smooth as possible for the children.

“The community must understand that we are acting in the best interest of the children,” he stated.
