CAC Secondary School Asa Dam 7. St. Barnabas Secondary School Sabo Oke 8. St. John School Maraba 9. St. Williams Secondary School Taiwo Isale 10. St. James Secondary School Maraba The closure comes as a government committee comprising representatives of the Muslim and Christian communities meets to iron out the differences between the two communities.
