The Commandant-General, Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), says over 2,000 personnel have so far been deployed to guard schools in the North-East.
Gana said in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), on Sunday in Yola that the deployment was in compliance with the directives of the President, following the abduction of some school girls in Dapchi, Yobe State, by suspected Boko Haram Insurgents.
Gana had toured some schools in Adamawa, Taraba, Borno and Yobe states.
He however said the level of infrastructure decay in some of the schools was alarming, adding that the observation would be communicated to relevant authorities for action.
“What I found in some institution is not encouraging at all. We intend to report on the need for some infrastructure to be put in place to ensure children are safe and well secured,” Gana said.
