Katsina government uses dogs to guard boarding schools
The Katsina state government has approved the use of dogs by security personnel to protect public colleges.
The move, according to Katsina State Education Commissioner Dr. Badamasi Laval Charancha, should complement the efforts of security personnel assigned to each college.
“We were advised to place these dogs in every school because they have a special ability to detect intruders faster than humans in many cases.
“These dogs, when launched, will alert students and other security personnel of intruders or bandits as they travel,” he said.
For his part, Katsina State Executive Governor The Honorable Aminu Bello Masari said his administration has strengthened the security architecture of public colleges ahead of their reopening.
In addition to accommodating five security guards at each school, he said, perimeter fencing and watchtowers were erected at each state college.
