A source at the school who is not authorised to speak on the matter says academic activities is ongoing and calm has returned to the school.
Residents in Sokoto say those claiming that the strange ailment may be meningitis may not be far from the truth.
They say closing of boarding school outside the state capital has forced the state government to merge them with their counterpart at the city centre and this may be responsible for congestion that can lead to sickness.
