The Federal Ministry of Education has directed the immediate closure of all Federal Government Colleges domiciled in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, while ordering immediate evacuation of students. 

The schools’ closure was born out of fear of impending bandits and terrorists’ attacks following rising insecurity and threat to the lives, properties and well-being of the students. 

While some schools had directed students to vacate latest on Wednesday, July 27, 2022, other schools disseminated messages to parents on Sunday asking them not to fail to come pick their children on Monday, unfailingly, due to rising fear and anxiety emanating from reported threats. 

An unconfirmed report had trended on social media on Sunday, indicating that there were heavy shootings at Federal Government College in Kwali, Abuja, a report which prompted parents to rush down to the school to ascertain the safety of their wards and possibly return home with them until calm was restored.
