He explained that the letter created tension among staff and students of the school.

The commissioner said the suspect claimed that the letter was a ploy to close the school.

Usman said armed security personnel had been deployed to the school to ensure the safety of staff and students.

“We don’t want to be taken unawares; hence, the need for us to adopt a proactive security measure against any security threat.

He added that the command had commenced investigations into the claim and appealed to the public to assist the command with useful information to combat banditry and kidnapping in the state.
