Schools urged to play part in fighting terror

Lagos - Local schools have been urged to include social ills in their curricular in order to eliminate the menace of terrorism.
The suggestions by the All Progressives Congress United States International Secretariat follow the incessant attacks by the Boko Haram sect.

Among the latest attacks were carried out in Kuje and Nyanya in the Federal Capital Territory this past weekend.
“It is mandatory to empower security operatives with latest security gadgets, early warning signs and facts finding for confidence and performance increment.
"And time for schools and institutions to include social ills in their curricular, such as bomb blasts and terrorism,” Francis John, APC USA International Secretariat Coordinator, said.

He said stakeholders must “vehemently” use news and electronic media, including social media in educating the general populace all the times.
John said the organisation encouraged volunteerism after prospective personnel passed intensive security and background checks.
“To be in good standing, checks must be performed at least every quarter, including performance appraisals.”
Last year two incidents were recorded at Nyanya and Kuje Market Area, adjacent a police station.
John said the attack late Friday was the third to be recorded in Nyanya.
“Some lapses trigger for thorough investigations, as to which security operatives were assigned to the location, eye witnesses, passer-by and residents.”
