Covid-19: Police shut academy, order lecturers, students to vacate campus

Following the directive by the Federal Government ordering tertiary institutions to close over the Covid-19 pandemic, authorities of the Nigeria Police Force have shut down the Nigeria Police Academy, Wudil, Kano.

The degree-awarding institution was expected to close by Monday (today) in compliance with the directive.

 The force spokesman, DCP Frank Mba, confirmed to our correspondent on Sunday, that the students and staff had been directed to leave the campus.

 The shutdown, he added, might last for about 30 days.

Mba, however, said police colleges and training schools where 10,000 constables were undergoing training would not be affected by the shutdown directive “because the trainees were almost concluding their programme.”

He said a lot of sensitisation and monitoring were being carried out at the training schools.

Mba said, “We are shutting down the police academy, Kano, for one month or thereabouts. For the training colleges, the training is almost over but we are carrying out a lot of sensitisation and medicals by the police medical department.” Punch
