The Federal Government has ordered the immediate closure of Federal Government College Kwali, located in Kwali Area Council of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.
Education Minister, Adamu Adamu, gave the directive in a statement by the Director Press and Public Relations of the ministry, Ben Goong on Monday in Abuja.
Adamu said the closure became necessary following a security breach on Sheda and Lambata Villages, suburbs of Kwali Area Council which also threatened FGC Kwali.
According to the Minister, the timely intervention of security agencies saved the situation.
Adamu Adamu also directed that arrangements be put in place for final year students to conclude their Senior School Certificate Examination (SSCE) organised by the National Examinations Council (NECO).
The minister directed Principals of Unity Colleges across the country to liaise with security agencies within their jurisdictions in order to forestall any security breach in the unity schools.
