Security Threat Eventuality: Strategies School Administrators Are Planning to Adopt in Delta State, Nigeria


This study investigated security threat eventuality: strategies school administrators are planning to adopt in Delta state, Nigeria. This inquiry was based on two research questions and two hypotheses, using the descriptive survey. The population consisted of 476 school administrators in Delta State, of whom 190 were selected through stratified sampling. A Security Threat Questionnaire (STQ) was used to gather information. Data obtained were coded and analysed using mean and standard deviation and a t-test to test formulated hypotheses at a .05 significance level. Findings revealed that security threats school administrators in Delta State are prone to include stealing among students, fighting, kidnapping of teachers and students, and destruction of school property by students, among others. Also, strategies school administrators are planning to adopt in the event of a security threat include contacting security operatives, encouraging students to report any security threat, and informing teachers and students to be more vigilant during school hours, among others. It was thus recommended amid others that school administrators should contact security operatives like the Nigerian Police Force, community police, or those who volunteered to keep the community and schools safe from any security threat.
