Hajia Zainab Bello, the Director of Quality Assurance in the Ministry of Education and Human Capital Development, said apart from being illegal, the schools were operating in unhygienic environment.

Bello, who spoke on behalf of Alhaji Musa Yeketi, State Commissioner for Education and Human Capital Development while closing 19 other private schools, said government had begun verification of tertiary institutions in the state.

She said that the objective of the exercise was to fish out those violating the laws that established them.
