The All-Nigeria Conference of Principals of Secondary Schools (ANCOPSS) says it has embarked on sensitisation of its members on handling security challenges in view the rising spate of school-targeted kidnappings.

Mrs Omotunde Lawson, President, Lagos State Chapter of ANCOPSS, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos that the sensitisation focused on how schools could secure their environment.

ANCOPSS president spoke against the backdrop of recent spate of abduction of students and staff in some schools in Lagos and Ogun states.

She advised school principals to clear overgrown weeds in their premises to prevent kidnappers from using such bushy environment for their nefarious operations.

“We are also sensitising our members on how to comport ourselves in times of danger.

“Schools with bushes are to clear them while security guards should ensure that no one goes into the school compound or comes out without signing.”

Lawson said that the Lagos State Government had pledged to recruit 5,000 neighbourhood watchmen who would also help in securing public schools.

The ANCOPSS president, however, urged both staff and students to be vigilant and report potential security and safety threats around schools to law enforcement agents. (NAN)
