BENIN—THE National Association of Parents and Teachers of Federal Government Colleges, NAPTAFEGC , yesterday condemned the killing of some students of Federal Government College, Buni Yadi, Yobe State, by Boko Haram sect members and called on the Federal Government to fish out the perpetrators.

In a statement by its National President, Mr Paul Erie, in Benin City, the association described the massacre of the students as senseless, wicked and inhuman, asserting that “the children killed had nothing to do with whatever issue the group was having with the Federal Government.”

While calling on the Federal Government not to relent in its resolve to end the Boko Haram menace, the association advised the government and security agencies to “beef up security in all Federal Government Colleges, particularly those vulnerable to attack. Government must strengthen its intelligence gathering mechanism to forestall future occurrence.”

In another development, the Executive Chairman of Edo state Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB), Prince Stephen Alao, has stressed the need for teachers to embrace the introduction of Anti HIV/AIDS clubs in primary schools in the state.

Stating this while flagging off the anti-HIV/AIDS clubs in primary schools across the state, Alao said the club would help create awareness among pupils, adding that the programme would help to develop strategies for the prevention and the spread of HIV/AIDS in primary schools.
