7 years after, Chibok school resumes

After seven years of closure, Government secondary school Chibok in Borno state on Monday resumed school activities.

The Borno state Governor, Prof. Babagana Zulum, made this latest development known via his official Facebook page.

According to him: “We will never allow that unfortunate incident or something similar to that weaken our determination towards providing free and compulsory education to every each and every child in the state.

“For now, the school will be operating as a day school and not as a boarding school,” He said

The school was closed down on April 15, 2014 after 276 school girls were abducted on April 14, 2014 by gunmen believed to be members of Boko Haram.
