Police Launch Protection Squad in Kano.


The Nigerian police force, Kano state command, says it has launched a sixty (60) man squad, trained to improve the security of primary, secondary, and tertiary schools in the state.

The school protection squad initiative, it says, is part of the inspector general of police’s strategy for ensuring school safety.

The commissioner of police in the state, Usaini Gumel, made this known while highlighting his achievements in one year of assuming office.

“The SPS comprised 60 adequately trained police personnel who have been provided with the necessary kits and tools for the task.

“They will from today, Thursday, May 2, 2024, be dispatched to intensify robust patrols around all primary and secondary schools, including all vulnerable tertiary institutions in all locations across each senatorial district of the state,” he said.

Gumel noted that the squad were specially trained for the initiative in Abuja. He also responded to skepticism of the effectiveness of the program saying he understood the number of men were not nearly enough to safeguard all schools in the metropolis and that the force will continue to increase the number in the coming months.
