Police, who have launched investigations into the incidents, said no injury was reported.

The fires, whose cause remain unknown, follow in the wake of more than 150 cases reported as schools were about to end their second term.

Most of the affected institutions are yet to rebuild the destroyed premises, while others have barred students suspected of causing the fires from classes until their cases are resolved.
