The Kano State Government has suspended the operational licences of all private schools in the state.
The state’s Commissioner for Education, Sanusi Kiru, stated this in a press conference On Monday.
The development followed the brutal murdered of a five-year old school pupil, Hanifa Abubakar, by her teacher, Abdulmalik Tanko.
The state government, in a separate development, announced the arraignment of Mr Tanko before a magistrate court in the state.
On the suspension of the operational licences for private schools, Mr Kiru said the government will set up a special committee for guidance on the next line of action.
