Pupils Attack Teachers With Guns In Osun

0
Some teachers at Anglican High School and Adenle Middle
School in Osogbo narrowly escaped being shot when some cultists invaded the
school compound and chased out teachers.
The school which houses 
student population of about 7,000 is made up of Anglican High School 1-5
and some students of Adenle Middle School.
Our correspondent gathered on Thursday that the crisis was
caused by some students who knew they could not pass  the qualifying examination the state wanted
to conduct to select those whose WAEC 
fee would be paid by the state government.
But some said the crisis started  last Friday when a student identified as Toib
and his colleagues stormed the school premises with dane guns to attack a
member of Osun Youth Empowerment Scheme ( O’ YES cadet) who they had issues
with.

A teacher told our correspondent that Toib and his gang
chased a female Home Economics teacher out of the class when the trouble
started.
The invasion of the school 
forced other students and workers to flee.
The Friday invasion was said to have forced the school
authorities to invite policemen but the cultists mobilised more members and
attacked the police even on Monday.
The development, it was gathered led to the instruction
given to the teachers by the Nigeria Union of Teachers that all teachers should
stay away from school because of the threat to their lives.
It was further learnt that the Osun State Ministry of
Education had also closed down the school to prevent any death.
The Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Education, Mr.
Lawrence Oyeniran,  when contacted
declined to make any comment on the crisis.
He said, ” This is a subject I don’t want to talk about.
Maybe you can see the deputy governor and ask her your questions.”
However, the NUT chairman, Mr. Amudah  Wakeel, when contacted said the crisis was so
serious, adding that some of the teachers were lucky to have escaped being shot
dead by the rampaging cultists.
