Following persistent attacks on villages bordering the Kaduna State College of Education, Gidan Waya by unknown gunmen, authorities of the institution have suspended academic activities indefinitely.

A statement issued on Tuesday by the Public Relations Officer of the college, Danlami Aduwu, said the suspension of academic activities was informed by the need to safeguard the lives and properties of staffers and students.

The statement directed staffers and students to vacate the campus.

It further urged all staffers to report to the temporary site of the institution at Kafanchan.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that all staffers and students of the college have since deserted the Gidan Waya campus in fear of losing their lives.

It will be recalled that villages surrounding the institution such as Godogodo, Pasakori, Mile One and Tudun Wada, were serially attacked by unknown gun men.
