Kebbi school shut over fire out­break

Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Garba Muham­mad, Birnin Kebbi

The Kebbi State govern­ment has or­dered the tem­po­rary clo­sure of Govern­ment Girls Sci­ence Sec­ondary School (GGSSS) Yauri, over fire out­break. It was gath­ered that the school has ex­pe­ri­enced four fire out­breaks.

The state deputy gover­nor, Ibrahim Aliyu, who spoke with Daily Trust yes­ter­day said: “The school has been tem­po­rary closed down due to fire out­breaks. We have dis­cov­ered that all the fire out­breaks oc­curred in the af­ter­noon. They all oc­curred when there was power out­age, so the is­sue of whether they were caused by elec­tric­ity surge has been ruled out”.

He added: “A com­mit­tee has been set up by the min­istry of ed­u­ca­tion to in­ves­ti­gate the re­mote cause of fire. How­ever, the SS3 stu­dents are still in school to write their WAEC ex­am­i­na­tion. You see, though no life was lost, govern­ment has to take very dras­tic mea­sures to un­ravel the cause of this mys­tery fire”.
